Activity Overview


A fun way to see if students have understood Le Petit Prince and to encourage creativity, is to have create their own “chapitre perdu”. In this activity, students will create a storyboard depicting a lesson of their choice. Ask students to think of their own lesson that they believe is central to life, and demonstrate it through the story of the little prince’s missing adventure to an eighth planet. Students may teach a lesson through satire which criticizes something they find illogical or through the inclusion of a wise character, like the fox, who explicitly teaches the prince an essential truth.

Students will enjoy presenting their stories in bande dessinée form. It won’t matter if their drawing experience is limited to open and closed boa constrictors - let the storyboard graphics do the work!
