In this project the students will create a family tree to introduce the members of their family or another family, real or fictional. This option is provided because so many students no longer come from what we consider a traditional family, due to divorce and remarriage. I do not want any student to feel embarrassed, and the vocabulary at this point does not include step-XXXXX. This powerpoint is given to them as an instructional tool and as a example. The students may develop their tree in any format. The project will be presented orally to the class.
This PPT will be an artifact for the students to review:
