Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Grade 6 students started a personalized project this Friday afternoon. This is a Social Studies project that is part of the Communities in Canada Past and Present Unit. First, students create a family tree. They may need your help to fill in the names of family members or ancestors. They are using familyecho.com that has a free template. They can ScreenShot their work and upload it to their Google Slide.
They will also include the following criteria on their Google Slide:
-cultural celebrations or customs
-World Map to show where ancestors came from or to show from which country ancestors immigrated from
-Other information of their choice that they wish to include.
They will also answer the following questions:
-How did my ancestors contribute to Canadian Identity?
-What does Canadian Identity mean to me?
