Kids can learn about family history with these 9 family tree projects!

 

Back when I was a classroom teacher, one of my students’ favorite subjects of the school year was learning about their family history and sharing the information they learned with their classmates. And now I’m loving getting to see my own child showing such an interest in her genealogy. Lucy has been absolutely fascinated with learning about her heritage and ancestors.

 

There’s so many ways to make exploring your family history meaningful for children both at home and in the classroom. Below are  9 of my favorites- you’ll find options for a wide range of ages! This post contains affiliate links.
