French Projects for Middle School or High School

I love using French projects at the end of each unit/theme to assess my students. It’s also a fun way for them to get creative and be able to learn through real life scenario.

If you are in a need of some french project based learning ideas to use in your classroom, please come back and visit this page on a regular basis. I will upload only projects that were successful with my classes.
Here are the project based learning resources on the HoustonFrenchTeacher TPT store:

Students will write a general presentation of their family on the cover page and describe fully 4 family members inside the photo album booklet. It’s a ready for use project.

* French Halloween Project – French Likes Dislikes Les loisirs (French Leisure) – Les Hobbies – Les Passes Temps.

Halloween usually falls around when I am teaching the French hobbies and what students likes and dislikes.

If you are looking for something fun and productive during Halloween, this will be a perfect mini project for the class. Students will be creating a foldable by pretending to detail what their favorite Halloween characters likes or dislikes. Students will draw 8 characters with the activities and will need to write 16 sentences.

In this project, students will:
* learn the French Halloween vocabulary
* practice the activities/hobbies in French
* practice “Aimer” and negative form of “Aimer” (n’aime pas)
For advanced levels, students can expand by explaining why the characters like certain activities (incorporating “parce que …”)

The final project is actually quite fun to read, especially for level 2 students when they come up with the reasons.

Pays Francophones – FRANCOPHONIE (French Speaking Countries) Distance Learning & Printable – PROJET -INFOGRAPHIC

FRENCH DISTANCE LEARNING PROJECT AND PRINTABLE for any PLATFORM (Google Classroom™ Distance Learning, Microsoft Teams™ Distance Learning, compatible to any learning system platform! And fully Editable! There is a file version for Google Classroom™ and one file version for all other learning management systems!

If you are looking for resources that are compatible for any learning management system, here is a French Project on La Francophonie, French Speaking Countries – for print and distance learning. Need some nice visuals for your classroom, every year, I love to hang those around my class! The completion of this project is beautiful!

Having to move from Google Classroom to Microsoft Teams, I told myself that I need resources that will be compatible for any platforms.

As a teacher, we have already so many things on our plate and I truly do not like to replicate my work unnecessarily. So during Spring, as I was working with my classes and coming up with new digital resources, I decided this time to create a new product line where I can always use my resources no matter what school district I end up working with. I also needed a digital resource that can be self-assessed, without needing me to spend more time to grade! And I do not want to pay extra money or a yearly fee to be able to use any other apps.

My ultimate and primary goal has to always make sure that my students are engaged and have fun while learning/practicing their materials. So I hope your students will enjoy my new product line: Magic Picture as much as my kiddos. This was their most favorite activity because they were super eager to discover the hidden picture while solving their problems!
