Second grade students have spent quite some time digging into their roots to discover exactly where they – and their family – came from. Students worked on their heritage projects, complete with a report on the country their ancestors came from and a doll in which they dressed up to represent clothing from their country. Some students also brought in pictures of family members, and others wore an actual outfit from different generations.
This week, students presented their heritage projects, and the entire project culminated with the classes holding a potluck. Each student brought in a food from the country that they learned about during their heritage project.
Excellent work, second graders! We are proud of you.

The following pictures: Every second-grade student made a doll and dressed it in clothing (by coloring it, using fabric or actual doll clothes, and even Legos) from the country studied in their heritage project.
