Second Grade Final Family Heritage Project

As a culminating project to our family heritage unit, students created a Strip Design with 8 boxes. Each box included a photo, screenshot, or picture drawn in DrawingPad as well as a caption explaining the illustration. The topics for the boxes were flag of an ancestor's county (found from the Country Flags app), map of an ancestor's country (from Kid Countries app), a family heirloom, culture from an ancestor's country, family tradition, food from an ancestor's country, and facts about a maternal and paternal ancestor.

Once the StripDesign was complete students saved each of the 2 4 box pages as an image and imported them to Educreations. On Educreations they read a paragraph they had written about the 3 favorite things they had learned about their family during the unit.

Overall the project was time-consuming, about 1 1/2 hours, but the finished products were amazing.
