Students will certainly acquire new vocabulary as they read Le Petit Prince. In order to help them improve their understanding of each new words, students will create a spider map that defines and illustrates vocabulary from the story. Students can complete this activity as they read, or you can assign small groups of students one or two chapters each and have them present their storyboards to the class. It's also a great pre-reading activity, to introduce students to the vocabulary before they'll encounter it in the text!
The storyboards can take many forms, depending on your students’ needs. Include the vocabulary word with only an image, or add a definition and/or exemplary sentence. For a fun twist, have students include an image and sentence and ask the class to guess the meaning of the vocabulary word based on context clues.
