Please be aware this is a packet that is large - hopefully you have the resources to allow for copying a packet - it is meant to be used over a 45 minute period.
If you don't know what to leave the sub, who may or may not speak French/Spanish, this if for you! I created these "create and copy" packets - I have a total of 7 now, and they are (Louis Pasteur, Louis Braille, Votaire, Napoleon (early life), Statue of Liberty, Eiffel Tower, Marcel Marceau)
Well, these I created for myself, to avoid the hassle of making different plans for different classes, to give some cultural information, and to have enough work for a class period.
I needed a packet to solve the problem of having work for all three levels in middle school, and I am able to simply make enough for all the classes at once.
I made double sided packets, and removed the solution pages
These can also be used for in class work as well
Here are the "specs" for the packet
