Throughout the course, students are expected to learn who they are as a member of their larger community. The unit of family is just one component in the child’s life and we want to encourage exploration of how they fit into their family and how their family contributes to their lives. This lesson will allow the students to see and understand similarities and differences between families and to acknowledge that there are no set definitions of what a “family” should be. The end result will be an understanding of their identity and their connection with the people who are involved in their lives, as well as their physical environment.
After this lesson Students will be able to:
Participate co-operatively in groups and gather information from personal experiences, oral sources and visual representations
*Interview handout is included with lesson plan*
