Activity Overview


As students work to decipher the French text of Le Petit Prince, they may benefit from summarization practice. In this activity, students will summarize the story, or a section of the story using a traditional storyboard. Pick a particular chapter, planet adventure, or character interaction to have students summarize using visual storyboards. They may do so in comic form (writing exclusively in text bubbles) or through narrative text below their scenes.

The sample storyboard summarizes the interactions between the narrator and the little prince throughout the story. This could alternately be worked into a plot diagram if you plan to teach narrative structure along with this text. Make the assignment more advanced by requiring students to use the passé simple in their summary text.


Le Petit Prince Summary

L’avion du narrateur s’est écrasé dans le désert du Sahara.

Le narrateur s'est aperçu d’un petit garçon qui lui a demandé de dessiner un mouton.

Le garçon a expliqué qu’il était le seul habitant d’une petite planète, sur laquelle il n’avait qu’une amie: une rose vaniteuse. Ensuite le petit prince a raconté l’histoire de ses voyages après avoir quitté sa planète jusqu'à son arrivée sur la Terre. Son récit a pris plusieurs jours, pendant lesquels le narrateur essayait de réparer son avion.

Le huitième jour, le narrateur est alle avec le petit prince chercher de l’eau. Ils ont trouvé un puit merveilleux.

Cependant, Le petit prince avait la nostalgie de sa propre planète. Il voulait y retourner. Alors, il a permis à un serpent de le mordre pour envoyer son esprit chez lui. Son corps est parti avec son esprit et le narrateur est convaincu que le prince s’est installé à nouveau sur sa petite planète.

Finalement, le narrateur a réussi à réparer son avion. Maintenant, chaque fois que la narrateur regarde les étoiles, il imagine qu’il puisse entendre le rire du petit prince. C’est pour lui comme des millions de grelots.
