Grandparents Day Activity - Grandparent's Day is celebrated on September 7, 2014, so spend the next week showing your students how to honor their grandparents by studying their unique heritage from their grandparents. They will determine the various traits they have inherited and customs and traditions which have been passed down to them from both sides of their family. They can build a model of a grandparent to show clothes of a particular type of heritage to share with the rest of their class.
Please take time to leave me feedback if you download my FREEBIE! I appreciate hearing from you.

This activity packet includes a cover and page for a mini-book or card that can be given to Grandparents to honor them, even if it is after Grandparent's Day. The focus is on inherited traits and/or traditions from grandparents so that students can learn to understand and appreciate the differences of others. The activity can be incorporated as a social studies activity as a study of cultures where students can be assigned the task of completing a clothespin figure representing their heritage and then share it with the class.
