Elementary Activities

Where did you come from? Researching family history can be hard, but getting started is easy—it’s all about asking questions. I Can Climb My Family Tree

Make a time capsule for yourself to open ten years from now. Fill it with reminders of your life and what’s going on around you.  Then seal it up with a reminder not to open it until 2030. Make sure to keep it somewhere safe!

You might know a lot about your family as it is now, but what about how it used to be? Interview a grandparent or other older relative about what they were like at your age. Tips from FamilyTreeMagazine.com and Genealogy.com

Middle School Activities 

Start a journal to tell your story. Write whatever you want, but make sure you write something. If you need something to start the writing juices flowing, try this subject generator, these writing prompts or these prompts.

Use “What Happened On Your B-Day” to look up your birthday. Do you share a birthday with any celebrities or historical figures? (Spoiler: you definitely do—there are a lot of them!)
