Your students will dive deep into their heritage for this project! This is a great resource to get to know your students and for your students to get to know their peers. Learn about your students' diverse experiences through project-based learning.

Students will research their ancestry, migration patterns, genetics, family traditions or whatever aspects of their heritage interests them and are meaningful to them. They will work within the community, complete an authentic final product of their choosing (ideas available), and give an authentic presentation (ideas available).  This project was designed using project-based learning principles - student choice, innovation, relevant to students, and impacts the community. The result is a student that is intrinsically motivated to learn, takes charge of their education, strives for improvement, and possesses the tools to problem-solve and think critically.
