Like U.S. schools, schools in France are going on-line. Take a look at some Web sites of French schools. Find out the following:
Do students in France study the subjects that you study?
How is your school similar to or different from the French schools with sites on the Web?
Where in the world is French studied?
Compare your findings with those of your classmates.
Now that you've become acquainted with some French schools, say hello to Astérix le Gaulois, a cartoon character loved in France by people of all ages, not just students. Although Astérix is an ancient Gaul, he's kept up with technology. You can find him on the Web!
Check out Astérix on the Web and take notes on any cultural information you find.
If you feel inspired, create a storyboard for your own Astérix cartoon.
