      This story is set in Louisiana. A group of animals decide to play a trick on their friend on her birthday. She believes that they don't care about her when, in fact, they are planning a surprise party.

      This kit is designed to help students consolidate the vocabulary and structures that they have learned in the first two steps through ever more extensive use of partner/group activities such as story retelling, story extension, rap writing and performing, etc. At the end of this unit almost all students are able to produce 10-page original documents entirely in French.
