Product Description
This one-day lesson will make Halloween fun and fascinating for your upper-level French students. Combining the creepy, but fabulous piece of classical music "La Danse Macabre" by Camille Saint-Saëns with medieval poetry and artwork, students will be listening, imagining, visualizing and speaking all while absorbing some really interesting French culture!

This powerpoint download includes all of the research and translation work done for you! Using the slideshow, give students some background on French composer, Saint-Saens and his symphonic poem "La Danse Macabre."

Students will listen to the 7-ish-minute piece and try to draw the story the symphonic poem is trying to tell. A speaking/story-telling activity follows to get your French students talking in the target language before moving into a reading and culture activity based on *included* medieval art and poetry.

Finally, students hear the piece again with their new knowledge of the legend and reinterpret the music while listening for the instrumental symbolism Saint-Saens was playing with.

This activity is intended for 3rd and 4th year students of French. Finally, an activity that is holiday-based, but not made for beginners! Amusez-vous!
