Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used to introduce animal words. Give groups animal names in French and make the noise of the animal in French then guess what it is called in French. Do French animals make the same noises as English animals? Could also be used as the starting point for some simple storytelling. Add verses with different animals suggested by the pupils and then make up stories about these animals and the noises they make to share with a partner school, or with a younger class.
