  • 1. Mangeons un Repas Français Introduction: A WebquestOh là là! Chef Jacques needs your help… and quick! There is a new restaurant opening onthe third floor of the Eiffel Tower at the end of the month, and the head chef, Jacques, cannotcome up with any good ideas about what to serve when the American Ambassador and othergovernmental representatives of the United States come to eat at the restaurant on openingnight. Jacques is convinced you can help him! Since you yourselves are Americans, whatkinds of French foods would you want to try if you had the opportunity to eat at therestaurant? Be careful when choosing though… French meals are a little bigger than whatyou may be used to! The Task:
  • 2. Chef Jacques is putting together a special meal at a new restaurant called Voilà! on the thirdfloor of the Eiffel Tower for the United States Ambassador and other governmental officialsof the United States. You and your classmates have been charged with selecting the foodthat will be served at this special meal. Caution: You must choose foods which accuratelyrepresent each part of a French meal:* l’entrée* le plat principal* le fromage* le dessert* le vinWorking in teams of three, you will choose French foods to represent each of the fivegroups listed above, and then each team will prepare a presentation for Chef Jacques inorder to convince him that your team has worked both diligently and carefully to select thebest foods for him to prepare and serve at the dinner. The goal of your presentation is to beas creative as possible. They sky’s the limit! You may present your meal idea howeveryou’d like to. However, you must present in French, and you must address each of thequestions listed in the “process” section of this Webquest. Remember: the Chef is lookingfor creative, innovative ideas.  The Process:
  • 3. 1.) We need to learn about the different courses involved in a typical French meal. What kinds of foods are usually served as entrées? http://www.ffcook.com/pages/dentree-p.htm 2.) What about the main dish, or le plat principal en français? Which main dishes are the most popular in France? Check out this website for some delicious, popular French recipes! Once you find some recipes that look appealing, jot down two or three you can choose from to use in your presentation. http://www.aftouch-cuisine.com/french- recipes.htm 3.) France is very popular for all of its fine cheeses. Cheese is often served after the main dish and before dessert. But which cheeses are most common in Paris? Visit this website to find some answers. http://www.frencheese.co.uk/cheeses/cheeses.php When you get to the website, click on the “search for French cheeses” link on the left hand side of the page under the news tab. Next, click on the section of the map labeled “Île-de-France.” L’Île- de-France is the region of France in which Paris is located. Finally, after scrolling through some of the cheese varieties, jot down three cheeses you would like to try, the strength of those cheeses, and the type of milk the cheeses are made from. Finally, visit http://www.cheese-france.com/club/top10_cheese.htm to discover the top 10 most popular cheeses in France. Compare the list on this website to the cheeses you wrote down, and use both lists to help you choose the three cheeses you’d like to have served at Voilà! on opening night. 4.) The dessert is probably the most famous, sought-after part of a French meal, and the choices are limitless! Visit http://www.traditionalfrenchfood.com/french-desserts.html and http://french.lovetoknow.com/Famous_French_Desserts for more information. At the first website, read a few of the dessert descriptions to get an idea about what looks most scrumptious to you. Then visit the second website which describes the characteristics of a French dessert BEFORE making your dessert choice. After all, a good dessert is the key to a good meal.  5.) French people typically like to drink wine with their meal. However, wines come from many regions throughout France; thus there are plenty of options to choose from. For example, there are white wines, red wines, rose wines, dry wines, and sweet wines. To learn more before making your wine choice, visit: http://www.french- wines.com/index.htm 6.) How are the three French meal courses served, and how is the table set? Go to http://www.food-links.com/countries/france/french-meal-customs.php to find the answers to these questions. Think about some differences between how a typical American meal is served and how a French meal is served. You may also visit http://www.ffcook.com/pages/dinner.htm and take a look at some of the menus to help give you an idea about how you’d like your meal to look. CAUTION: Do NOT copy items directly from the menu! The objective of this assignment is to be creative. 7.) After you’ve gathered all the necessary information, design your presentation! Don’t forget to be creative!  Visit http://ezinearticles.com/?10-Tips-For-Designing-Extraordinary- Presentations&id=2543656 for some tips about how to create extraordinary, innovative presentations.*** Don’t forget to find pictures of your meal choices and to use information from yourresearch in your presentation to explain to Jacques why you made the choices you did!*** To get back to the Webquest after clicking on these links to visit websites, simply leavethe Webquest open, and close the internet page after you’ve gathered the necessaryinformation.

  • 6. Conclusion: Congratulations! You have now completed your specific menus for the opening night of Voilà! Chef Jacques will be reviewing your presentations and making his decision very soon. Now that you’ve learned more about a typical French meal and the vocabulary that goes along with describing it, I’d like you to take some time to reflect on the assignment. Please write a 1-2 page reflection that addresses the following questions: What did you like about the Webquest? What didn’t you like about it? What would you change about the assignment to make it more meaningful to you? Credits: Teacher Page:Introduction: My goal for students upon completing this Webquest is for them tounderstand the different courses involved in a typical French meal as well as theFrench vocabulary that goes along with describing the meal. I would like studentsto be able to point out differences between a typical French meal and a typicalAmerican meal, and I would like them to practice using their creative minds todevelop and present projects to their classmates using both French they havelearned previously and new French vocabulary that they learned while completingthe Webquest. Finally, I would like students to gain practice reading Frenchmenus so that if they one day decide to study abroad in France, they will havesome idea about what they’d like to order at a restaurant.
  • 7. ***To complete this assignment, students will work in groups ofthree, pretending they are trying to prepare a meal for Chef Jacques for a specialdinner he is serving at a restaurant called Voilà! on the third floor of the EiffelTower. To do this, students will look at a variety of online resources to learn moreabout the following meal courses: l’entrée, le plat principal, le fromage, le dessert,et le vin. After they have obtained the necessary information and answered thequestions in the “process” section of this Webquest, students will then work ingroups of three to design a creative presentation to convince the chef that he shouldserve their meal at the opening night of his restaurant.Learners: This Webquest is designed for 8th graders who have already beenexposed to one year of French. As such, students should be able to use verbsexpressing “likes” and “dislikes” such as “aimer” and “détester” to describe foodsthat may or may not sound appetizing to them. Students should also be able torecognize the names of simple foods they’ve studied the previous year, such as“steak-frites,” “fromage,” “coca,” “glace,” and “poisson.”Curriculum Standards: From the 5 C’s: - Communication: Communicate in languages other than English.
