8th Grade Culture Project With each Chapter we’ve completed in our Bon Voyage textbook, we have had a cultural lesson that showed some aspect of French culture that complemented the topics of the chapter. For the remainder of the year, we will spend some time on different regions of France and her major cities in an effort to learn a bit more. The best part…………..you will be teaching us about these areas! This project will be in ENGLISH with some bits of French thrown in from time to time.
You will choose from a list of French areas and you will present in any pre-approved fashion the highlights, including:
-Where it’s located on the map of France -Some history -Major cities -Food -Traditions -Points of interest – why might someone travel there? -Ten new vocabulary words that you find along the way while you are researching your area (if it’s a fishing village for example how do you say fishing? fishing boat? fisherman? Port city? Etc……..
A useful website to get started is http://about-france.com/regions.htm
Your project must have a minimum of two pages typed and some accompanying visual materials which can be a powerpoint, posterboard, picture montage, video montage, a decorated shoebox with materials inside that showcase your area, etc.
This is an individual project. Please be sure I have approved your presentation idea before you get started. We will have SOME time in class to work on this project, but you will be expected to work on it outside of class as well.
