Why is it important to have a strong family? What does it take to have a strong family? These are questions students will be able to answer after completing this project. Students will also recognize the importance of spending time with family members and help them build strong family relationships with other family members by completing this project.
Students will complete a journal that includes pages such as traditions, family tree, and a family motto. The journal consists of 15 pages. For each page, students will include a picture and a brief description.
When the project is complete I give students the opportunity to share their journal with other students. I have also had students make their favorite family recipe and share it with the class when the journal is complete.
Teachers may choose to have students complete all of this project in class, some parts of the project in class or have students complete this project as a homework assignment.
