La Résistance de la France! Where did this idea begin? Show and tell the compelling story of Vercingétorix and Jules César with these two files.
File 1: Two pages of illustrations in PDF (11 illustrations in total) of the story of Julius Casear and Vercingetorix
File 2: 1 page of sentences in French that tell the story of the Conquest of Gaul.
Use the illustrations to tell the story in the target language or use them alongside a reading selection about the Conquest of Gaul. (I have used the illustrations with the easier story from 'Contes pour débutants' and with the intermediate reading from 'La Civilisation française en évolution.')
Use the sentences to tell the story, or have the students cut them up, mix them up, then put them together in the correct order after they have read about these two great figures.
These two activities work really well as reading stations or leveled reading practice. More advanced students can put the sentences in the correct order, intermediate students can put the pictures in the correct order, and struggling students can use the illustrations as a whole page while they read.
After your students read, ask them to use the pictures to summarize the story. (This works really well in a TPRS classroom and is great for target language use!)
(If you want Vercingétorix and Jules César to say/think different things, white out the writing and write in your own words.)
