Family Tree Project

I sent home a special Family Tree project for our class today. Please check the green paper in your child's folder. I am attaching the letter below, as well as some picture examples of other family trees for ideas.
Creativity is encouraged! :)
Dear Families,

      Our study of trees will branch out into the realm of FAMILY TREES.  Please help your child create a family tree of his or her own.  We will also use this project to begin discussing different cultures found in our community and classroom.

*This project is due on Tuesday, October 30th.*

1.     Make a tree on a piece of thin poster board or large sturdy paper.  The poster or paper needs to be no larger than 16X20 inches.  They will be displayed in the classroom and wall space is very limited.  You can use any medium you would like. Suggestions: crayons, markers, paint, fabric, wallpaper etc.

2.    Glue actual photos or create illustrations of family members to branches or leaves.

3.    Write each person’s name below his or her picture.

4.    Family members must include: your child, siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles.  Cousins are optional.
