5th Grade Français
In fifth grade Français, students continue their foreign language study by translating and acting in the play, The Frog Prince. This is our most advanced play yet, and students will use dictionaries and translation apps to uncover the meaning in this play. Our "Big Idea" is language, and we will discuss and write about how language makes human beings a unique species. We will continue our study of the Habits of Mind, take a look at a famous speech about language by the astrophysicist, Stephen Hawking, and use the system of the parts of speech to create our own workable language.
