A couple of weeks ago I planned a unit on Biographies (French). Our motto for the unit is "Inspire, and be inspired". The goal of the unit is for the kids to interview someone inspiring in their lives, and to write a short Biography on them.
To start, I wanted to expose them to a variety of Biographies - not just any kind, but ones that they could relate to as 9 and 10 year-olds. I found an absolutely phenomenal website that does just that! Even though all the stories are in English, we discuss them in French. The website, called Inspire My Kids focuses on a wide variety of topics, such caring, fairness, compassion, responsibility, etc. It contains a wide database of inspiring stories and videos of people from all ages.
This website, I'm sure, can be used in many, many different ways. Please let me know if you have used it and in what ways.
