Family Tree Craft

Fifth graders can create a family tree craft when learning about the history of their family. Start off with a large sheet of poster board. Paint a big brown tree trunk with lots of branches coming off it. Now cut leaves out of colored construction paper (use red, green, brown, yellow, or orange). Write the name of each family member on the top of the leaf. Add a picture to the center of the leaf, and then list any important dates or special information about the family member on the bottom. You can photocopy your picture if you don't want to cut it to fit the leaf. Glue each leaf on a branch of the tree.
