This is an authentic article (from the French on-line newspaper for children called 1jour1actu) that will allow your students practice reading comprehension skills as well as expressing opinion in writing and orally.
Disclaimer: I have a subscription to 1jour1actu that gives me access to their on-line articles that they allow to print and use in class. I have not modified this article to preserve its authenticity. The article is mostly written in "le présent" and "le passé composé", therefore, it is best suitable for French 2, 3, 4, and AP students. However, I intentionally wrote all comprehension and reflection questions in "le présent" to accommodate a variety of learners.
This document has: authentic article, 12 comprehension questions, 8 reflection questions.
This activity could be either done in class or assigned for homework. You can have students read the text out loud in small groups to practice reading, and then answer questions to practice speaking.
P.S. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Leaving feedback will earn you some TpT store credit that you will be able to use for your future purchases :)
