French II Paris Metro System
Our French II students recently took a trip on the Paris Metro system—or the Hubbard Metro system (the next best thing!) Students first learned about the history of the Parisian subterranean subway system, and they also mapped out routes virtually by using classroom Smart Boards. Finally, the halls of Hubbard High were converted into Metro lines with views of Parisian monuments at every corner. Students were successfully able to navigate one another in French through our very own subway.
