I've done work with my students about La Fête Nationale many times over the years but realised that I'd never blogged about it.
So, here is a list of some resources and links you could use:
- There's a cornucopia of resources here on the TES website.
- Clare Seccombe's Lightbulblanguages has a Quatorze Juillet podcast
- linternaute.com has an article: Pourquoi le quatorze juillet est-il fête nationale ?
- There's a nice video clip: ça veut dire quoi Liberté, égalité, fraternité ?
- ParisInfo has a webpage dedicated to celebrations happening in Paris.
- Tête à modeler has some practical projects
- momes.net has a page full of activities for younger children here, including some nice comptines and coloriages. There's also a quiz here
- TICS en FLE is a blog with a lot of useful resources
- Education Scotland has a page with some good links and information
- dltk-kids.com has a Bastille Day related page with information and printables (I hate that word!)
- mflresources.org.uk has a powerpoint about Bastille Day
- languagefun.co.uk has a powerpoint for primary children by Jo Rhys-Jones
- Surprisingly, there's a lot of facts in English at http://bastille-day.com
- euroclubschools has some activities and a quiz here
- thegrid.org.uk has a word document called "how to celebrate Bastille Day" with lots of ideas for activites
- awesomestories has a clip from Horrible Histories about the storming of the Bastille
