Explore winter traditions in the Francophone world with this resource, which highlights 10 common traditions (listed below). We provide a one-page text in French, written with sheltered vocabulary to maximize student comprehension; a projectable version of each text; a comprehension page for each tradition; and a document of teaching ideas and several accompanying resources.
