MICDS third grade students and parents celebrated their family histories at the annual Third Grade Family History Museum last week. The Family History Museum is part of the third grade social studies curriculum, which focuses on the growth of the United States and how people adapt to their surroundings. The project encourages students to develop a deeper understanding of these issues as they research their own family histories.
Third graders welcomed guests from the MICDS community and shared their beautiful displays which included photos, family heirlooms, timelines of when their families came to America, and family stories. Many students shared that their favorite part of the project was learning stories about relatives they hadn’t heard before.
