Genealogy Classroom Ideas

Stanley A Lucero

Madera, CA

  • Each of us needs to know about our ancestors.
  • What are their names?
  • Where were they born?
  • What can we learn about their language, culture, and history?
  • What countries do the ancestors of the students represent?

We are going to start a family unit for the next four weeks. Your children will be asking you for the names of your parents, brothers and sisters, grandparents, and aunts and uncles. They will also be asking you where each person was born. They will not ask you for specific dates – approximate year only and only for those family members who have passed away. Please don’t send privateinformation about living persons.

We will complete a variety of family (genealogy) forms, doing family trees, making up family books, doing collages of family pictures, maps of where our family members were born, and many more activities where the students can be creative..

Please help your children to make this a positive, learning experience where they can learn about themselves and their family. The goal of this unit is for the students to become more aware of who they are, where they come from and to develop a positive, self esteem.

Please come to the classroom and share interesting family stories with the students in our room. Come and help us at one of the classroom centers where you can help all of the students with one of their assignments. We need classroom volunteers!

If there is information about your family that needs to remain private, remind your children not to share that information at school.

Sincerely yours,

Mr. Lucero
