There is a need for my students to study about their family backgrounds. Most of my student's families live far away from their grandparents & relatives. Some of my students hardly know their grandparents. With the holidays approaching, I thought it would be great for my students to take time when families get together over the holidays to take pictures of their grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. They would write about the history of each family and put it in a scrapbook so that they could look at a book and remember all the good times that they had when they were together. I teach a general second grade class. Most of my students receive free lunch. They are great students. It would be such a delight if these students had disposable cameras to take home and take pictures of their family. Once the pictures are developed, they would write about them and make a family history book to look at for years to come when some of their family members have moved away. We need to remember where we came from. Since many of the families in my school are from Mexico, they have totally lost contact with their heritage. It is very important for these students to remember their heritage. As time passes, these students will have a way to remember their past.
