Hello Everyone:

 

Please pass along to your child that when they come back we will be doing our End of the Trimester Party on Monday November 26th.

 

We do have some unfinished business. Tell them I will be NOT doing the math test; we will just go ahead and start on double digit division. There will be a project the beginning of December for this math unit though…..that will be the test for both division units.

 

Students should have worked on their long term project this week. I will be asking for them to turn in their project folders on Tuesday November 27th.

 

There is NO homework over the break….unless they want to talk with family about their Heritage Scrapbook.

 

Also, Families wanted the links to the state capital games….here they are.

Family Heritage Scrapbook

 

Due: Friday December 14, 2018

 

  1.  Task

It is your job to create a scrapbook that will be a personal history of important facts about you and your family. The pages may be typed or neatly written.

 

  1. Process

 

Step 1 – Interview a relative (grandparent, aunt, uncle, parent, etc.) using the interview worksheet as a guide. After the interview, you must write one favorite story that they told you. The story must be at least three paragraphs in length; each paragraph must contain at least 5 –7 sentences. The family story should explain some special event or occasion that occurred in your family. The story might involve you, or it may be about any other family member. Pick an event that you think is interesting or funny. Make sure to proofread, edit, and revise before you write your final copy for your scrapbook. Illustrate your story.

 

Step 2 – Discover the origin of your name. Interview your parents to find out why they chose your name. During computer lab we will use the Internet to search for the origin of your name as well.  After you discover the origin of your name, create an illustrated scrapbook page about your name. Be creative; include your name, the origin, and any other important information you have learned.

 

Step 3 – Create a family tree, listing as many relatives as you can. Include birth dates if possible and illustrate your family tree. A sample will be included in the pack and discussed in class, but you can make up your own tree.

 

Step 4 – Choose two favorite family recipes and write/type them each on a separate sheet of paper. You may choose any type of recipe: dessert, snack, soup, salad, main dish, etc. If your family makes this dish for a special occasion include the occasion with your recipe. Also include who started the recipe (grandma, aunt, mom, dad…). Make sure to explain the recipe so that anyone could make it. Illustrate your pages.

 

 

Step 5 – Interview a member of your family about what his/her life was like in the 5th grade using the sheet included as a guide. With the information you learn, you will create a Venn diagram comparing and contrasting yourself and the person you interviewed. Illustrate your diagram and give it a title.

 

Step 6 – Create an autobiopoem about yourself. Use the template for a rough draft, then write the final copy on a separate sheet of paper. Illustrate your poem.

 

Step 7 – Research your family’s country of origin. (We will research the country during computers, so you will need to know the country November 1st). You will create a color map, a color flag of your country, and complete a worksheet about the country of origin.

 

Step 8 – Create an “About the Author” page. Using the worksheet as your guide, you will write a paragraph about yourself. You may want to include a picture of yourself too.

 

Step 9 – Do reflection sheet and put in your scrapbook separately.

 

Extra Credit – (1-2 extra points) you may add other information you have discovered about your family to make your scrapbook more interesting and personal. Some ideas may be: family vacations, games, holiday events, etc…

  1. See attached grading rubric to help you understand how this will be graded.

 

  1. Assembling Your Information into a Scrapbook

After you have completed all of your information about yourself and family, you must compile it into a scrapbook. You can use a folder, report cover, or anything else you can think of… be creative. Your scrapbook must have an illustrated cover with your first and last name on the cover, a title page, a dedication page, a table of contents, and all of the items you have worked on at home or in class. You may use the worksheets you filled out, but it would be better to create pages using the sheets as a rough draft/template.

 

  1. Presentation

Once you have completed your scrapbook, you will present at least two parts of your scrapbook to the class. You will have 2 – 4 minutes to present. Decide what you want to share & practice at home!

 

Have fun working on this project!!! When you are finished you will have created a scrapbook that details the heritage, history, and traditions of your family.
