As part of their Academic Service Learning, students of French 101 and French 102 classes of the French Program in the Department of Languages, Literatures and International Studies at NMU, will create and arrange educational displays, for the Upper Peninsula Children's Museum. The educational exhibits will be directly linked to the concepts and vocabulary students learn in their beginning French class, such as, just to name a few: body parts, members of the family, the weather, food, names of countries, nationalities, and professions.
The notion of how to present these concepts and vocabulary most effectively and creatively come from the minds of the students, and are carefully supervised and guided by their professor.
The exhibits are completed in class, and are brought to the Children's Museum to be displayed. Students present their work orally to those guests of the museum who are on the premises as the projects are being placed on display.
