Students will explore their own family history by making family trees.
Students’ homework assignment on “Why My Family is Important.” Blank family trees.
Teacher opens class by reading (anonymously), several students’ homework assignment. A brief discussion follows, and teacher reemphasizes that each student’s family, regardless of size, type etc., is important. The teacher also points out that family trees will help students better understand where they fit in, in their respective families. The family trees will also reveal important family history information. Students are given blank family trees to fill in what they can during class.
Students are asked to take family trees home and complete them with the help of parents and other family members. In the process, they’re likely to learn important information about their family history.
