Students explore the meaning of families by discussing their own families, creating a family portrait, using texts, outdoor experiences, and guest speakers, and then connecting their ideas to the natural world through animal families. They will concretely explore an element, such as homes, that are necessary for family survival (e.g., What is a home? How will you build a home to keep your family safe?). Through loose part play and small group conversations, children will connect the importance of families in a global context.
