This Pere Lachaise French reading will teach your students about a cemetery that received no respect at first but is now “the place to be buried” in Paris.
At first, this cemetery was an unpopular final resting place and people had to be convinced to bury their loved ones here. Pere Lachaise cemetery is now a tourist attraction in Paris with a waiting list for burials. But why do people want to visit a cemetery? Find out in this reading.
This Pere Lachaise French reading activity includes a short reading activity on Google slides to be shared via link or Google Classroom. Students can type their answers directly on the slides and share them with you. You can also use the included Google Forms version of the questions – have students type their answers and receive all answers on one convenient spreadsheet. Or even better – use Flubaroo to grade the multiple choice questions and you’ll only need to grade the short answer questions!
