Where does our story start?

Last week we took a look at how we are all connected to different people and places.
We talked about where our families came from geographically, and where our parents or even grandparents came from.  As a class we were surprised at how many of us came from the same places and it was so neat to hear the children discussing this with each other.

The class seemed to really enjoy plotting themselves on the world map and seeing where others had travelled from.  This week we want to start looking closer at our own stories.  Who are we connected to and where do they come from? How far can you trace your family history and what can we find out from our parents about their lives when they were little?

Stories are an important part of who we are and how we are connected to those around us. Remembering that family looks different for all of us and being sensitive to those who have loved and lost, lets try and bring some positive, happy, and meaningful memories into our week and share them with our children and each other.

  1. What a fun and meaningful task, Room 9. You are from all over the place! In Room 19 we are doing some similar learning. Maybe we could share our discoveries?
