Slaying the Dragon

Following the banner of the crusaders, the kids set out to find the dragon!

For the culminating event of the 3 day French camp that our school hosted, the kids went on a crusade to slay a dragon.  They had made shields, swords and even quite authentic knight helmets.  Here are some pictures of the slaying of the dragon.  I'm so grateful that my kids were able to be a part of this sort of hands-on learning.

These 3 sisters are prepared for battle.
Oh dear, the ranks are turning on one another!

Levi was crowned "Le Roi" (the king) at the previous night's banquet.  This is because he ate the piece of cake that had a goodie hidden in it.  
This little girl was "la reine", or the queen

They have found el dragon!

Fearless french teacher lifts a knight to slay the dragon.  Maybe she was a page.

Madame Bass, French teacher extraordinaire has been promoted, I see!  And yes, that is a dad in the background wearing a duct tape knight costume!  The kids were beyond impressed!
