My Traditions

This My Traditions lesson plan also includes:

Learners explore their family traditions through interview, art, and creative writing. They take home the included interview sheet to learn more about their ancestral celebrations and use a map to identify where their ancestors came from. Then, individuals choose one holiday or celebration to write a poem about. Art is added into the mix as they make either a drum or a rainstick typically used in Native American celebrations.
