Before your students arrive for class, place Post-it® Arrow Flags on a map to call out where a language, such as French, is spoken.
Encourage your students to guess what the Post-it® Arrow Flags could mean.
Lead a discussion about different countries where the language is commonly spoken - in every continent.
Have students choose one of the countries marked on the map. Have them do a web-quest research to find out more information about their country - background, people, foods, etc.
Have your students present their discoveries to the class using the Post-it® Arrow Flags on the map to point out where their country is located.
Keep the Post-it® Arrow Flags up throughout the year as a visual reminder of what they’ve learned.
