Here is a list of Famous French men and women.
Here is a great list of MUST KNOW French people. This can be used to pass out to students for Famous Frenchmen Project so that students branch out and learn about more people than just Napoleon, Coco Channel, and Marie Antoinette.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE...
Page two of this document is a Scavenger Hunt. Use this to kick-start a unit on Famous French People or individualized Frenchmen projects. It helps ALL students get a little familiar with ALL of the MOST famous people in addition to a few more obscure ones. After this they can choose a Famous Person that is of further interest to them.
GET EVERYONE SHARING: Have students do a fact swap in class as a Bellringer activity. Put up some of the people on the whiteboard and have each student share one fun fact where they want.
This can be a class project in the computer lab or a homework assignment.
TWO easy ways to use:
1. Students can Copy/Paste information before printing it out or e-mailing it to you.
2. Students can print it out and fill in as they go.
