This is a great activity to use to begin the investigative work with students on the topic of SAVOIR and CONNAITRE. In this song, the lyrics contains several uses of each verb. Students are then asked to listen to the song (link provided) and circle words they hear. Then the students are asked to listen to the lyrics again and fill in the blanks with the vocabulary they hear.
Then , they are asked to brainstorm about what the expressions "je connais" and "je sais" mean in the context of the lyrics.
Finally, students are asked to work in groups to determine the differences between SAVOIR and CONNAITRE, and to write them down in a table. Usually, after we learn a song in the classroom, I assign each student with a line of the song, and the student is in charge of drawing a picture of what the line says, then I make an I-movie with all the pictures with the song in the background. Because this song has a lot of nature metaphores, it would be great to use for this!
