Early Start French 2: CONTENTS | HOME

What you will learn in section 8

You became familiar with numbers 1-31 when working with Early Start French 1: "Salut! Ça va?" In this section, you will get more scope for measuring in French, as the video introduces you to the higher numbers 40 - 200 and beyond.

You will be able to measure in French, such as in our kite-making project; also weigh ingredients and do more calculations. In section 9, "L'Euro", you will use the numbers for shopping in French.

The Teacher' s Manual has a feature on the history of metric measures in France.

kite How to make your own kite in French

One class made the kite in the Teacher’s Manual in a session where they all spoke French to give instructions, and to ask for materials and tools.,

They then looked for other designs to experiment with, in a bid to find the best kite.

One success was a design from a kite school in Hawaii . Using a sheet of A4 photocopy paper per kite, it offered - "20 kites for 20 kids in 20 minutes - Uncle Jonathan's easiest classroom kites ever!" -
