This is a two-part family tree project. The first component is the cover and actual tree, PRINT ON 11'x17" PAPER. The second component is an 8-page information booklet. This project is a great starting point for grade 5 Social Studies Unit 2: Histories and Stories of Ways of Life in Canada. It is primarily a TAKE HOME project as much of the research information lies with parents and other relatives. As family make-up and the changing nature of today's families can be a sensitive area for some students, ensure you do careful before instructions. You may wish to cover topics such as step-families, adoption, and unknown relatives beforehand. Many students do not know blood relatives and may choose to do their adopted or step families.
