Here are 3 super fun activities you can do during your Festival Du Voyageur unit:
1) Introduce the Festival du Voyageur Unit
Put together a slideshow of photos from previous years of the festival. Have kids identify the different activities and foods that are offered at the festival. Want a slideshow that’s already done for you? Click HERE to grab mine.
2) Play Festival du Voyageur Games
It’s no secret that students love to play games in French class. Some of my favourite games for a Festival du Voyageur unit include:
3) Make a Model of a Traditional Voyageur Canoe
Have kids research the different materials and tools that the Voyageurs and Indigenous peoples of Canada used to make canoes. They can then design and assemble their own canoe models. This activity is best completed in small groups of 3 students so that they can collaborate and bounce ideas off of each other.
