Students will watch a video about the history of vaccination. Questions have been inserted into the video thanks to EdPuzzle. The clip pauses each time a question pops up to give time to students to write their answers. After that, students discuss their answers in pairs or in small groups, then as a whole class. Following these activities, students will analyze a newspaper article containing the COVID-19 vaccination rate of countries around the world. Discussion will follow. Students will pick a francophone country and will be guided to create their own vaccination awareness campaign clip for that specific country and present it to the whole class.
