This is a simple yet effective activity that will get your students moving around and speaking French. Students will practice asking and answering questions in French using greetings-related vocabulary such as: bonjour, comment t'appelles-tu, je m'appelle, comment ça va, ça va bien, au revoir, etc.
This activity was inspired by the Kagan's Quiz Quiz Trade cooperative learning activity (also known as task cards).
There are 32 cards each containing a different picture of a French cartoon, book, film character on one side and the name of that character on the other side.
1) Print as many cards as there are students in your class so that each student gets at least one card. If you wish to have all the cards in the rotation, distribute 2 cards per student.
2) Cut the cards and laminate them for durability.
3) Distribute one (or more) card per student.
4) Students have to get up, pair up with another student, complete the task of the card, exchange cards with their partner, pair up with another student and repeat the activity again as many times as you see it fit.
Students have to:
1) greet each other
2) ask 2 questions: Comment t’appelles-tu? Comment ça va?
3) say good-bye
4) trade cards
Student A: Bonjour !
Student B: Bonjour !
Student A: Comment t’appelles-tu?
Student B: Je m’appelle … (reads the answer from the back of her card). Et toi?
Student A: Je m’appelle … (reads the answer from the back of his card).
Student B : Enchanté
Students A: Enchanté. Comment ça va?
Student B: Très bien (gives an answer per visual clue on the front of the card). Et toi?
Student A: Pas mal. (gives an answer per visual clue on the front of the card).
Student B: Au revoir.
Student A: Au revoir.
The answers can be printed on the back of the cards. (If you choose to do so, please know that the answers align perfectly with the questions when you print them back-to-back from your computer).
