Secret FILE #976 - Family Trees
Time to shine your magnifying glass beyond yourself and include your family.
We shall begin with an info video. Come close...
Ah, I see! A FAMILY TREE is a diagram that shows the relationship between people in several generations of a family; a little bit like levels. Family Trees can be designed in many different ways and take up A LOT of paper if there are lots of family members!
TASK 1: Let's explore William's family tree. Here is more info about William to read (or have read to you):
When you have read it through once, open up:
Have a think/chatter about what a family tree shows. Can you build William's family tree using the text?
PARENTS: Encourage your child to talk about William's family and the relationships between them. Invite them to ask and answer questions, such as:
Challenge them to consider what your own family tree might look like and explore the idea that everybody’s family tree will look different because each family is unique.
TASK 2: Can you build your OWN family tree? You could use the template below, draw your own on plain paper (or in your exercise book) or EVEN make a whole family tree MODEL!!
When you are finished, why not find someone in your family to share your work with (you could even invite Granny and Grandpa to a Zoom family meeting!). Can you explain the relationships between yourself and other family members in your tree? Are they your dad? Sister? Uncle? Great Aunt?
