Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used to compare games in different countries - is it like a game we play? Are the rules the same? Investigate other typically French playground games and encourage pupils to play La Marelle at breaktime or in their free time. Could also be used to practice counting in French - pupils could count with the French children or count backwards as the children go back to the start.
