The teacher plays five songs that he or she has selected among the most popular works of Quebec’s five great chansonniers: Leclerc, Vigneault, Léveillée, Ferland, Charlebois. Each student chooses one of the songs in secret and illustrates it in a style imitating that of the animated film. The teacher numbers the drawings, puts them up around the class, and has the students associate each drawing with one of the five songs, by secret ballot. The drawing that is “decoded” most often is awarded the top score.
