This is a reading comprehension activity based on the Swiss legend of Guillaume Tell.
The reading is three pages long and is accompanied with a vocabulary list (glossary) and pre-reading, reading, and post-reading comprehension questions. There is a French version of the questions and an English version of the questions depending on your teaching preferences and level of your students.
The story is familiar to many students, but it is also a look at the culture and history of Switzerland, one of my favorite French speaking countries.
If you like this activity, you may also find another reading activity that I have created that is at a slightly lower reading level which is my French Prehistoric Art Reading Activity
