A Final Task for French Immersion students in Grade 7 (Ontario). It requires them to plan/design a structure and build a prototype. Their structure must resist "wind, rain, and debris". It goes through everything learned in the unit:
- Les types de structures
- Les forces
- Le centre de gravité, la stabilité
- La symétrie
- La conception universelle
A French rubric is included. It is in French and it outlines 4 marks: a) Science, b) Oral French, c) Written, d) Listening
It's pretty hefty so I suggest allowing them to do it in partners, if not groups of three. The marks change individually as they present and participate.
