Grade 5 students create a virtual story book in French.
In French class, the grade 5 students have been studying the classic French fable ‘La Cigale et la Fourmi’ (The Grasshopper and the Ant) written by Jean de La Fontaine. As the culminating project for the unit, the students worked in small groups of 3 or 4 to retell that story in a new creative way.
Each group put their own spin on the story by changing some of the elements like the characters or the settings. After writing a rough draft in French, students created a virtual storybook by collaborating on google slides. In class, the students got a chance to read their ‘book’ to the rest of their class.
