La Toussaint

  1. Choose a person from the list or choose a famous French person (make certain they are DECEASED!). Be sure to check with me to see if he/she is acceptable ! If you have to ask yourself this question, “I wonder if Madame will think this person is appropriate?”…that person is probably NOT.



  1. Research your person. You will need the following information:

    1. Birthdate-né(e)

    2. Date of death- mort(e)

    3. Where born

    4. Where buried OR where they died

    5. 3 (trois) IMPORTANT things about that person’s life…for example, what are they known/famous for?



    1. Picture of the person- it can be printed, cut out of a magazine, copied from a book or NEATLY drawn (NO stick figures s’il vous plaît!)



    1. A quote from or about that person- this can be in English or French depending on the source of the quote. If the quote is about the person, note the author of the quote.



  1. Using a cereal box, Styrofoam, or another material of your choice, create a tombstone for the person you chose with all of the above information. Make sure to include the picture and quote. The tombstone should stand on its own.



  1. The tombstone is DUE ON OCTOBER 31, 2013…HALLOWEEN. If your project is not turned in on 10-31-13, you will be assigned a three paragraph essay about the person you chose. The essay should give a brief biography in your own words, tell the person’s accomplishments, and explain why you chose that person. The essay will be completed in English and will be due on November 1, 2013. Note that you will receive a zero for the tombstone AND a grade for the essay.
