Year Five Research Project

Famous Frenchies


Your project for the next two weeks is to research a famous French person from the past or present. You can choose any person you like from any domain: sports, science, fashion, engineering, a historical figure or even a cartoon character!



You can choose to present your research in one of the following ways:


* a poster

* a fact file

* an information leaflet

* a video (imovie, Apple Clips, Explain Everything, Book Creator…)



You should write in English (although it would be wonderful to include some French words/phrases) and you should aim to answer the following questions when presenting your research findings:


  1. What is this person famous for?
  2. What is remarkable about what they do/did?
  3. What difficulties or opposition are they facing/did they face?
  4. What impact are they having/did they have on the world?
  5. What can we learn from them and how do they inspire you?
