Second Grade Studies Family Heritage:
Second grade participated in a family heritage project using Molly’s Pilgrim as a novel study. The students conducted a family interview to learn more about their heritage and identified traditions in their family. Students learned that people from their ancestry came to the US in hope for a better life. They brought with them their customs and traditions which made the US a cultural melting pot. The students made a "pilgrim" in class by researching a country of their heritage and creating clothing that represented traditional dress for that country. They spent time comparing the "pilgrims" that came on the Mayflower to the “pilgrims” of their family heritage. The students also researched several interesting facts about that country. At the Second Grade Heritage Celebration, the students presented their cultural suitcases with all of their classwork, the family trees, and their cultural Pilgrim.Full Story
