Mon Dieu!!!! What a horribly tragic day! Monsieur Le Dindon has been discovered, fully roasted, on a living room table in your hometown. Quelle horreur!
An original, fun, and creative way to merge Thanksgiving craft activities and French language skills - both written and oral - with a focus on past narration. Students write a story detailing the last day and the "fowl" play leading to the unfortunate demise of Monsieur Le Dindon, create a personalized hand turkey, and present to the class.
Resources for two variations of project are included - one focusing solely on the passé composé (lower level) and one that focuses on narration in the past using passé composé and imparfait (higher level). Could also easily be adapted to IB/AP-level courses with the inclusion of conditional, etc.
A one-stop download for all your French levels this November! :)
