How to Use a Mannequin in Your Classroom #5 (Learning to Describe Even More Past Events)!

Students in 3rd year French participated in the wedding of our classroom mannequins, Jacques & Suzette!  Everyone had a part to play.  Students acted out the ceremony at the town hall with the mayor and then the church ceremony, so they learned about French culture as well.  Here are some photos.

The mayor presides as Jacques & Suzette sign the marriage license.

The mayor gives Jacques & Suzette their livret de famille.

At the church, the flower girl scatters rose petals.

Jacques & Suzette exchange rings.

Suzette is wearing my grandmother's wedding dress from 1933.

And of course, there was a little goofing around as well!

Later, students read a description of the wedding and practiced choosing the correct verb tenses for describing a past event in French.  It was a day to remember!
