How to Use a Mannequin in Your Classroom #3: Learning to Describe One's Family

First year French will learn how to describe their families this week.  In order to teach students the family vocabulary, I will introduce them to the family of Jacques DUBOIS (my classroom mannequin).  Here's a photo of Jacques.

 I used photos of store mannequins to create a Power Point presentation of Jacques' family.  Here are some of the photos I used in the presentation.

This is Jacques' uncle.  As you can see, his family is multi-cultural.

This is one of Jacques' brothers.

And this is Jacques' dog, Beau!
You get the idea.  I had fun making this presentation and am looking forward to using it in class.  I think it's a good way to go beyond my textbook to help make the topic more interesting, and maybe even a little amusing, too. :)


  1. I love the idea of using the pictures of other mannequins!
