Let’s have fun learning about Paris! Even if you’ve never been there or can’t get there anytime soon, you can still get a good idea of what Paris is like through taking a look at a handful of great informational websites!
Each student will be given a monument or other type of place in Paris to learn a bit about, and then share with the class. On the notecard given, you will answer the important “W” questions (What? Where? When? Why? Who? and/or How?)
After 10 minutes of research, each student will present for 1-2 minutes on the interesting info they found! (Depending on what it is, your information will change, please note the things you find most interesting).
What? What is important/interesting about your monument/etc.?
Where? Where is it located?
When? When was it built?
Why? Why was it made/created? Why is it important?
Who? Who built it? Who is it for?
and/or How? How is it used? How has it changed?
