This French project gives students to become the artists and then visit a class museum of their artwork. Each student selects a "tête" from a Francophone (or Francophone connection) painting (some "heads" are included). Students work at making proper agreements by describing clothing items and their colors. This is an interactive project which gives students the tools to develop their written and oral output competencies. It also helps develop an understanding of the Francophone world. This project includes the project and museum visit criteria, clothing vocabulary and some examples of "têtes".
•Use your learned clothing and color vocabulary to communicate a simple message in the written and oral form
•Correctly make adjective (color) agreements (les accords)
•Describe the physical description (clothing and of the character created) of the character in the painting
•Show an appreciation of Francophone culture by learning about a Francophone/Francophile artist
•Critique the classroom paintings in the museum using j’aime/je n’aime pas.
1.Complete the « head » of an authentic painting with a drawing of a person that includes at least four clothing items, four accessories and one footwear item as well as a Francophone setting.
2.Label all of the items with their colors and write a simple sentence; don’t forget the agreements. (une robe violette)
3.Glue the drawing onto cardstock paper and complete the drawing with an original and logical background.
4.Write a logical sentence on the back of the painting which describes what the person is wearing. (Elle/Il porte une robe violette).
5.Research the artist and the original painting. Write a paragraph which fulfills the criteria and glue it on the back. Then on to the musée !
