On Thursday, April 6, second graders finished off an ancestor study unit with great fanfare at their Ancestor's Day multi-cultural celebration. Students dressed up in clothing representing their family heritage and shared a food dish from their culture. Families and relatives were invited to participate in the festivities which included singing, an international feast, and parent speakers.
As part of their study unit, students wrote a report about their family, created a family tree, shared photos and family artifacts, created beautiful paper dolls, and corresponded (the old fashioned way!) with a grandparent or family member about what life was like back in the day.
Ancestor Day continues to be a lovely celebration of the diverse cultures and rich heritage that make up our Arroyo community!
