Come together for a collaborative Carnaval!
French Immersion, District-level initiative, Cultural activities, Metro Vancouver Region, 2017-2018
French Immersion teachers at one of the secondary schools collaborated with the French Immersion teachers at the feeder elementary schools to create an enriched French Canadian Cultural experience (Carnaval). By participating in guided activities and games related to Carnaval with the secondary French Immersion students, elementary students learned more about the Bonhomme Carnaval including the vocabulary and cultural traditions associated with it.
The goal was to increase student's understanding of the vocabulary and experiences related to the Winter Festival Carnaval. It gave elementary students the chance to become more familiar with the French Immersion Secondary School. It also provided secondary students with the opportunity to provide and lead guided activities for the elementary students.
