While studying their “Extreme Sports” Unit, researching new and vibrant activities online got boring for some French students.

Instead of another class period spent surfing the Internet, Upper School French teacher Mrs.Rachel Chabot decided it was time for students to get creative.

They were divided into groups, and instructed to create a list of activities they enjoyed. The students gave their activities a “twist,” making them more extreme.

For example, a group of sophomores created a version of the online game” 2048,” where you lose a body part’s ability to touch the Smartboard.

“By the end of the game, they were kneeling on the floor with their eyes closed and hands behind their backs,” Mrs. Chabot said, laughing. “It didn’t work out so well.”
