Weather Report Project

French Weather Report
 The objective of this project is for students to
correctly use the French language using weather
related vocabulary, numbers, and days of the week.
Students will prepare a weather forecast and present
it as if they were on a television news program. The
forecast must be entirely in the French language.
 You can present this project live or on video.
What do we need to do?
The class will be divided into pairs.
Each group must prepare a weather forecast for "their"city or country. If the group
wants to they may create a fictional city or country.
The following must be included in the "forecast"
a) A map - poster board size or larger. It should include weather symbols that are
a part of the map or that can be attached. You could also do a powerpoint
presentation instead.
b) A written script - this will be turned in and graded.
The following should be included in the forecast:
1) Begin your presentation by introducing yourself and your partner. You
may include a small conversation with your partner
2) Today's weather - including High and low temperatures
3) Tomorrow's weather- highs/lows, etc.
4) The weather for the next 3-5 days
c) Each student should speak in French for at least 1 minute.
The total time for the forecast will be 2 (ish) minutes.
For some ideas, you could watch a couple of television weather reports to get an idea
about what is expected!
Students are graded on their script, their background and their oral presentation. See
the rubric on the back.
