Project 3: Option 3
The Grade 6 French Immersion class will make contact with another French Immersion class in the province to set up a letter writing project. Students will be expected to write and edit a letter or letters and post them to a "partner" in the other school. Students will focus on a theme for the letter whether it be attitude towards parents' rules for young people or things for young people to do in their community.
This project will give students the opportunity to focus on a theme and write and edit a letter based on that. They will also have an opportunity to share ideas with students in another part of the province. It will give them exposure to the Internet and e-mail and the knowledge to use this form of communication.
The curriculum connection is French Language Arts and more specifically letter writing. Students will do writing and editing of their material. This is one of the objectives in the Grade Six Program.
