3D Family Trees

Leave a comment


I have my sixth grade students practice their family vocabulary by building three-tiered family trees using the chairs and tables in our classroom.  Grandparents stand on the tables, parents on the chairs and children sit cross-legged on the floor.  This year I borrowed one of my colleagues handmade puppets so that the students would get a better visual of the age and gender of the family vocabulary words.  It was also fun to include a pet dragon in the family.
