Jenny Lake challenges blurb2

Certified French teacher Jenny Lake has prepared dozens of challenges (called: Missions) that vary from individual (50 & 100 points), to pairs (500 points), to whole class activities (1000 points). French students and schools submit Missions for badges using the easy “Mission Submission Dropbox.”

It’s as easy as “un, deux, trois…”   Follow these three easy steps.

STEP 1. Have your students use the “BADGE Collection Sheet” for easy organizing of badges.
