Eat Your Colors - French 1 Colors & Food

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Vickie Lehtonen (Pre-School Teacher), Nov 05, 2012

    This is a great lesson that teaches the French language in an interesitng way.  I like the idea of using Twitter as a class discussion to allow those shy students the chance to interact without having to speak in class.  I like that while teaching French, the students are also learning about nutrition.  I like the hands-on approach by presenting the items in real life while discussing them.  This lesson encompasses various teaching and learning strategies like socialization, group work, individual work, written work and sharing.  This lesson meets the needs of various learning styles.

Technical Remarks:

The link to the handout does not work.

For the assessment portion, allowing the students to pick from a variety of presentation ideas might increase their interest by allowing them to express themselves and demonstrate what they know in a way that they are most confident in.
