frenchymms presents a family album project for beginning students. Instructions are included as well as a detailed rubric. Options include creating a hardcover or construction paper album or a powerpoint that is printed and then bound like a book. If your students have tablets or ipads, they could easily do this with a book making app but that is not written on there as an option, in case your students do not have them.
Students are encouraged to 'create a family' with their own real relatives and pets, or not. This easily allows students who are not comfortable with their own family situations to create this project while having fun "assembling" a family.
