This Pétanque French reading comprehension activity will teach your students about the sport of pétanque.  It is suitable for novice-high/intermediate-low students with teacher guidance and higher level students to work independently.  If you teach AP French, this reading can be useful in giving your students practice reading non-fiction articles for the interpretive section of the test in the contemporary life theme.  The reading can lead to discussion or writing activities to include the other two modes of communication.

La Pétanque is a fun and easy game to learn – but that doesn’t mean it can’t be challenging! Where does the game come from, and what do you need to play it?  Most students will not be familiar with the game, but it is a common part of life in some parts of France.  The game is a very old one, and it continues to grow in popularity – even in North America!  This reading will tell the story of the development of the game, how to play, and the history of its rising popularity.

The item includes:
  • 3-page article in French about la Pétanque
  • 10 comprehension questions in English
  • 10 comprehension questions in French
  • Answer key
  • Resources page with links to videos and website
Here’s what other teachers have said about this unit:
“Very compressible for my level 4 students, could be read for level 3 as well. We’re setting up to play Pétanque this week so this was a great first day activity to introduce the game. I liked how they’re were questions in English and French and that an answer key was included as well.”
