French Monuments in Miniature

French teacher Dominique Bernard reports on an annual class project that combines hands-on fabrication with research and language skills: “Every year we continue the Browning tradition of asking that the sixth grade French students create scale models of famous French monuments and write essays recounting the history of the edifices chosen. As always, the boys creatively built and presented their excellent projects to their classmates! Chapeau les garçons for such excellent work!

This year’ selections included the Catacombs of Paris, Door of No Return, Parc des Princes, Eiffel Tower, Grande Arche, Arch of Triumph, Napoleon’s Tomb, Le Louvre, Le Pont Du Gard and Notre Dame.
