Fenton All rights reserved. Madame Fifi Publications FAISONS LES COURSES LE FRANÇAIS au SUPERMARKET SCAVENGER HUNT As an introduction to the French food shopping experience, have your students do an exploratory warm-up activity. Send them off to look for French words - right in their own local supermarkets. Increase their awareness of how much French is there and teach them some new vocabulary and a few French product names, too. Copy pages 2 and 3 and give them to your students to take with them to the supermarket. On page 2 they will list as many French words and names as they can find like Perrier, Garnier, entrée, cuisine, etc. The activity on page 3 is more focused. It aks for specific information and guides the students with clues. Page 3 will help the students find more words for the page 2 activity. Set a due date which is 2 weeks away to give the students time to schedule the scavenger hunt and to make plans with their parents if they need transportation. Parents may not help the students find the words. This is not a competition. Let the students know that the actual search is the most important aspect of the activity. You would like them to complete both sheets, but tell them they won t be penalized if they don t. If they spend at least 30 to 40 minutes, make their best efforts, and get most of the answers, they will get credit. There is a teacher resource list of French words at the supermarket on page 4. Consider doing the activity yourself, though, to experience the task as the students will. You might find additional words in your supermarket to add to the resource list. RE-CAP After everyone has done the Scavenger Hunt, devote a class period to going over the results. Start with a quick survey to see how many French words the students found. Then make a composite list on the board. The students take turns contributing words as you write them in columns on the board. Ask the students to take notes. Tell what the words or root words mean. For example, explain that bouillon comes from bouillir = to boil. Identify names such as L Oréal, Garnier, and Yoplaît. When the students lists are depleted, continue to write more words on the board from page 4 and from your own list. When you finish, your students will be amazed at how much French there is at the supermarket that they never noticed. This activity will make an impact on them and leave a lasting impression. The students will feel a new appreciation for French. GOURMET meringue meringue Croûtons M OUSE sauté Susan M. Fenton All rights reserved.

Madame Fifi Publications FAISONS LES COURSES 3 CREATING a CLASSROOM for FOOD SHOPPING in FRANCE GENERAL DECOR Decorate the outside of your classroom door to look like the facade of a French supermarket. Use a real French supermarket name. Make a sign to put over the door. Put store windows to the left and right of the door and fill them with PROMOTIONS of the week. Your students will feel like they re walking into a French supermarket! Options: une pâtisserie, une boulangerie (Change the door each week; term.) Hang signs above the class that say the names of departments in a supermarket. Use pieces of string with buttons tied to the ends of them. Secure the buttons up behind suspended ceiling panels. Examples: les produits laitiers les légumes les viandes SORTIE les biscuits les fruits les fruits de mer CAISSE les produits surgelés les condiments la charcuterie les boissons Ask volunteers to paint a mural on white butcher paper for a classroom wall (supermarket facade, row of speciality store fronts, or outdoor market with stalls/stands.) Set up French some supermarket departments around the room with props and packages. Put signs on the walls for supermarket departments with labeled color images of their products under them. If you are in touch with people in France, ask them to send you some supermarket flyers - 2 of each. (Then you can use the front and backs of all the pages.) Laminate these and post them on the walls. PRODUCT DISPLAYS Display authentic French supermarket products that are sold in the United States such as Perrier, Toblerone, LU cookies (Petit Écolier, Evian, L Oréal, round Camembert box, Pim s cookies, Bonne Maman jam, etc.) Arrange them in a bookcase. Display products from American supermarkets that use French words. Create a classroom supermarket with facsimiles of French products. Send the students on a mission to find pictures of a wide range of French food product pictures on the Internet (butter, yogurt, canned vegetables, cereals, mayonnaise, dressings, jelly, sodas, cookies, chips, ice cream, etc.) Then divide the list of products and ask the students to make authentic-looking labels and glue them onto empty food packages they bring from home (jars, cereal boxes, bottles, etc.) Use soy milk containers for milk. (In some cases, like with Heinz and Kellogg s, actual bottles or boxes can be used. Alter the names. On your next trip to France or Quebec, go to a supermarket and find some actual products / packages to add to your displays and props. SIGNS Make colorful computer banners or signs for French supermarkets and speciality stores to to put on the walls. (Find signs in pictures on the Internet to use as models.) Post signs of brands of food sold in France. (See page 15.) Post signs of French food expressions (pages ) with meanings or get students to illustrate them. Susan M. Fenton All rights reserved. Madame Fifi Publications FAISONS LES COURSES 5 CREATING A CLASSROOM DECOR PROPS These props can be displayed to enhance conversations and activities; to present new material; and to conduct store simulations with customer-vendor dialogues.

BULLETIN BOARDS Groups of students can take turns doing the research and designing bulletin boards. French at the Supermarket Collage Make a collage of French words found on food packages or in magazines or newspapers. Assign each student to bring in 10 clippings for an assignment.
