Notice that the worksheet not only asks for the students family history information but also asks them to circle or list words that describe their family and what their family values. The students then drew and colored a family tree and listed their family members names on the branches (we tried to have them keep it mono-colored, but otherwise gave them free reign to be creative). Then the students used colored paper dots as leaves and wrote their "family description words" on the dots. They turned out AMAZING!!! I love how different and interesting the color choices were! Do you have any fun social studies ideas that you love?
Keep on Dancing in Your Teacher Shoes!
