Wednesday Block 1 French 8, phase 1-2

Scavenger Hunt/GooseChase

Just a quick heads up that my grade 8 phase 1-2 class (8 students) will be on a “GooseChase” during block 1 on Wednesday. They will be roaming the school following questions and challenges set it French. They will use inside voices and they will walk when inside the buildings. They will not go into any classrooms. They will need to use their phones to complete the tasks but walking and texting is forbidden. There will be a fine of 500 points per team member for walking and texting.

Bonne Chance!
