We’re Learning About Our Heritage in Second Grade!


The second grade Heritage Project taught the students about their ancestors’ backgrounds – and culminated on Wednesday with a tasty potluck with foods from around the world!

It’s the 14th annual year for the informative research projects which the students then presented to their classmates.

For the project, students worked mostly at home, as well as some in class, to research where their ancestors came from. They made flags of the specific country, created a family tree and even outfitted a large paper doll (some kids chose to dress an actual doll) in an outfit that can be seen in the country the student researched.

What great projects! Excellent work, students!

 

 

 

 

Second Grade Presents 13th Annual Heritage Projects


Second grade students celebrated the three-day school week before Thanksgiving by presenting their Heritage Projects – marking the 13th annual year for the informative research projects.

For the project, students worked mostly at home – as well as some in-class – to research where their ancestors came from. They made flags of the specific country, created a family tree and even outfitted a large paper doll (some kids chose to dress an actual doll) in an outfit that could be seen in the country the student researched.

Students presented their Heritage Projects – and then enjoyed a tasty potluck with their classmates. Potluck foods were brought in by the students and consisted of foods that came from the countries each student researched.

What great projects! Excellent work!

Students Get Creative While Learning About Their Heritage


Second grade students celebrated their heritage by digging into their roots to discover exactly where they and their families came from.

Students worked on heritage projects as they sought out answers to, “Have you ever wondered where you came from?” and  “Have you ever wondered what the country is like where your ancestors were born?”

The project included information on where their ancestors came from: the country and its capital; three interesting facts about the country; a family tree with pictures or drawings of those in the students’ ancestry; a doll dressed to represent the clothing and culture of the country; the country’s flag; and food that originated from the country being researched.

Students presented what they discovered and had a great time learning from one another.

Excellent work, second graders! We are proud of your hard work.
