2 (child): Family and heritage
- Read your Special Letter from your grandparent.
- Prepare your Special Letter:
Talk about your growing up-tell about games you play, sports you like, school
activities and other things you like to do. Tell about your family. What
kinds of things do you do together. Anything you think is important!
- For your grandparent's scrapbook:
Draw a picture of a tree on a sheet of paper. Include the trunk, branches,
leaves and roots. On the back of your picture identify family members that
belong to your own family tree including your parents, brothers, sisters
and other relatives. If you are not sure what a family tree is ask
your parents for help.
- Optional Activities (Choose as many as you want to do):
- Decorate your Scrapbook. If you have a scrapbook of things
your grandparent is sending you take time to decorate it.
- Picture Time. Find a picture of yourself or your family
that you can give to your grandparent. Place it on a sheet of paper.
Write a brief explanation of the picture at the bottom of the page.
- Life Line. On a long strip of paper, draw a heavy horizontal
line representing Life. Mark Birth and the date at
the lift end. Mark significant events, achievements and other points
along the line. If you wish add pictures or mementos or brief descriptions
to explain these points.
- Mail your letter and anything else you made to your grandparent.
