Family Tree

Some times as art teachers we are asked by the classroom teachers to create lessons that connect to their curriculum. I LOVE cross connecting curriculums! I think It is a huge benefit for the students to see how art and the classroom subjects can be integrated.

For this lesson I was asked to come up with a family tree project for a 3rd grade class. The paper I used was the craft paper on those huge rolls (the kind for bulletin boards). The is very pliable and could be easily shaped. I gave simple instructions to create the trunk, leaves, grass, and sun. They came out amazing!!


  1. These are totally awesome! What a fun way to learn about family trees.

  2. I just found your blog and I love this project!
