Need a quick and easy sub plan? Looking for a way to help your students make connections between their own experience and French culture? Want to give them practice working with informational texts in a way that's engaging and interesting? This "Le Fast-Food en France" webquest is for you!
In this activity, students will explore the websites for McDonald's France and Quick, a McDonald's-style fast food restaurant. In a pre-reading activity, students will consider their assumptions about French culture, which you could use as a springboard for a class or small group discussion or a four-square activity.
During reading, students will interact with the websites comparing and contrasting American and French versions of fast food culture and answering some guided questions. Finally, as a post-reading activity, students will write a short reflection on their opinions about fast food in general.
For each stage of the activity, hyperlinked websites are included to facilitate their search for information and keep them operating in the target language as much as possible. My students are always excited about this activity and it makes a great emergency sub plan!
