In this unit, students are equipped with the French "survival skills" necessary to cope in various situations that are likely to arise in the real life of a Canadian teen. Many students have travelled or will travel to a Francophone milieu, either within Canada or abroad. Students work ingroups to complete survival challenges presented to them by a "video host", all the while demonstrating teamwork and team spirit. Throughout the unit, teams will accumulate points for completing challenges based on the themes of travel, food, and problem solving. Through the Info-survie boxes,students will learn important language related to emergencies and technology. They will also discover some interesting differences between slang in Canada and in France. Final task: an impromptu challenge where students are given a scenario in teams, and are asked to devise a mini-dialogue that demonstrates their survival skills in French. Students receive points for this challenge, which are added to the points they have been accumulating throughout the unit. Afinal group of survivors is named at the end.Individual unit packs of approximately 40 cards per unit representing learning strategies and language.
