This is a project that my students in French III complete when we are studying the imperfect in detail. They are to create a scrapbook documenting their childhood. Included is the detailed project description, as well as which writing prompts they are to address. You also get the grading rubric that I use.
Students LOVE this project and often pour hours of work into them. I tell them that their goal is to make a final product that they would want to show their kids when they are older and be able to say, "Look at what I could do in another language!"
