'Rouge ou noir?' is a PowerPoint guessing game aimed to re-inforce colours when learning French. Children have to choose between two colours, such as 'rouge' or 'noir'. They move themselves to the corresponding side of the classroom and then the teacher reveals what the correct colour is! All the children who picked the wrong colour are out. Keep playing until there is one winner.
The PowerPoint contains two games in one - a version with the words to aid spelling (can be used with complete beginners) and a version without so children can recall the colour names from memory.
This PowerPoint can be used in several ways; to introduce colours, the game could be played slowly and with lots of repetition of the key vocabulary with the correct pronunciation. Alternatively, it can be played to consolidate knowledge of colours and of the French language. I have also used this in a math lesson on probability and chance as it's a 50/50 shot at getting the answer right!
As there is no way of knowing what colour is coming up next, I've found that it is a very fair game to use in the classroom and not just a test of who knows the most colour names! This has helped my less able learners feel confident about their french language ability!
