Sandy Ridge Discovers Their Heritage
Mrs. Jennifer Carlson’s class participated in an “Around the World” holiday party. The students researched their heritage by completing a family tree. They then chose a country to research and began their journey of finding out about their ancestors.
They wrote non-fiction books about their country, which included four chapters, a famous landmark, and a recipe from that country. The students also illustrated their books and created their countries flags.
The parents joined their children for the celebration. At the celebration they tasted authentic food from the country while sharing their non-fiction books. The students and parents enjoyed this activity of getting to know where they are from!
