Pierre et le Loup

The 3rd graders read about Pierre et le Loup, the famous tale by Prokoviev. We started the project by listening to the original story told by a very famous French actor, Gérard Philippe, after which the students had to answer a series of questions to test their comprehension of the story.
Then we read a version of this famous tale as reworked by Miguelanxo PRADO in a comic book version. We especially focused on the different ways (colors, images) the author explored the tale.
The children created their own comic book version of Pierre et le Loup, following the codes of comic books.
The results are stunning and on display int he hallway. come check them out.
