    - Each child makes a "family tree" in which he draws each member of his family on a small square or circle and glues the pieces on "the leaves" section of a construction paper tree.
    - Read Patricia Polacco's (sp?)The Keeping Quilt. (I think that's what it is called.) Send each student home with a 9x9 inch square to decorate with photos, drawings, clipart or magazine pictures of things that represent his family. When the squares are returned, share them and them "sew" them together into a large class quilt by punching 3 holes along each side and using yarn to connect the squares to each other. (An easier way to connect them is to glue them onto a large piece of mural paper, leaving a border around each square.)
    - Graph the number of family members in each child's family. Discuss results.
    - Honor an older person in the family with a Golden Guest Award, instead of a Golden Globe award. Each child draws a picture of their guest which is glued on a small piece of gold paper, so that it resembles a trophy. Label the gold paper section as one would an award. IE: Grammy Jones - Best Hugger or Aunt Mabel - Funniest Joke Teller. Have a tea to present these awards.
