Students watch a video segment and read about Mélanie, Martin, and their father. The family is planning a trip to visit their grandfather in Québec City where they will attend a family reunion. In Québec City, Mélanie and Martin attend the Fêtes de la Nouvelle-France, a festival of song, dance, theatre, and arts and crafts celebrating Québecs history. Mélanie and Martin become separated from their grandfather in a crowd, and must ask for street directions to find their grandfather. Students learn useful expressions in French and create dialogues for asking directions.
