Students will love going shopping in France and they already love online shopping. This activity gives them the chance to explore and navigate real clothing stores in France for men, women, girls, and boys at H&M, Zara, and Jules and reflect on style differences.
These websites are in French and incorporate current French looks and styles that students will find intriguing and allow them to feel more connected to French culture.
The WebQuest and included handouts are meant to be entirely completed on a computer. The handout includes text boxes for students to type their answers! (Feel free to also print the handout and have students write their answers.)
Using the store links provided in the WebQuest, students navigate the site in French and locate looks according to the prompts. They choose the look they feel fits the prompt and copies and pastes it into the photo box. Next, they describe the look in French. Then, they pick their favorite look and describe it in French. To reflect on the WebQuest, they answer Vrai/Faux cultural comparisons questions.
