This family tree project is designed to help younger students create their own family trees, while building a deeper understanding of their own families. This lesson contains writing activities designed to get young kids thinking about their own families. Several family tree templates are provided to include a variety of family structures - including adoption. There are also blank templates for families who wish to name their own members. There are both color and black and white versions of each template.

This project is great as a stand alone lesson, and is also a great companion activity for any stories about family. If you're using the Journey's curriculum this activity is a great companion to the story "Mi Familia - My Family".

This project is printable and digital.

Happy customers have said:

* "It's always amazing to me how some students do not know grandma/grandpa's names or even mom/dad's names! This was great for them to take home and find out! Thank you!"

* "I liked this packet and it helped me learn more about my students."

* "My class enjoyed this! Thank you for helping my class learn about family trees."
