Unveiling the World of French Comic Strips: A Guide for Grades 4-6

French Comic Strip Writing Units Free.jpg

Bienvenue, young readers and educators! In the colourful realm of language and culture, the world of French comic strips offers a delightful journey of exploration and learning. As we embark on this adventure, we will uncover the fascinating universe of French comic strips and discover how they can become a captivating tool for teaching and learning for students in grades 4-6.

Please note that the downloadable lesson is at the bottom of this post!

I like to start off my comic strip unit in stations. I have 3 stations and students remain at each station for about 20 minutes.

Station 1: Comic Strip Information & Note Taking

Have students read up on the slides that I have made and take notes (on the following two pages) on the questions asked and jot down any other questions they may have about comic strips.

Station 2: Comic Strip/Book Exploration

If you have comic books, great! If not, go ahead to your school library or public library and take out as many comic books as you see fit. I usually try to take out mostly French ones, but I do bring a few English books as well. I also recommend finding comic strips from newspapers, magazines, online, etc., and printing those out as well for students to see since this is what they will be doing.

Station 3: Comic Strip Creation

Print a few copies of the instructions and the example provided (a few slides down) for this station. Have students observe and read the comic strip. Add blank comic strip cards and have students create a quick comic strip on their own (no they won’t be done right, and that’s OK). It’s just for fun for now.
