Last Thursday was the annual French Festival at my son Micah's elementary school. It's an annual event, where the students - who begin studying French in second grade - get an opportunity to use their knowledge to explore French culture and history. The fifth graders research famous French people, like Marie Curie, Jacques Cousteau and more, and then spend the day dressed up as their subjects, answering questions about themselves for the younger students.
