This document includes 22 color photos of animals with lines next to each one for students to write a description of their animal. Includes model paragraph on the last page to model for students, on the board and orally.
Print color copies for each class. Cut them into half sheets (there are 2 animals per page). If you have more than 22 students in a class, repeat some of the animals.
Hand each student one animal and ask them to write their own descriptions. When finished, proofread and edited, ask each student to present their description to the class.
To introduce animals, I wrote different habitats on the board (la maison, la ferme, l'ocean, la jungle, la savane et la banquise). Then I asked students to close their eyes, imagine their favorite animal, open their eyes then draw a pic of their animal and write what is in French (le chat).
For the next few days, I gave each student a sandwich baggie and 15 flashcards. They have to then look up 14 more animals that live in the habitat of the animal they drew, write the names of the animals on one side and draw a small pic of the animal on the other side. Once they finish their flashcards, they will quiz other students to learn about different animals in different habitats.
