We are Family Expedition
We have been gathering data about our families. We have graphed some of our data to make it easier to see it all at once and to analyze it. We graphed the type of homes we live in, we graphed the cities we live in, we graphed the number of people in our family and we tried to graph the favorite dinners of our families but they were so varied that graphing them was a bit challenging but we managed. (You all have some wonderful dinners happening out there. I may be asking for some recipes.) We have also gathered data about how our families have changed over time by thinking about how the lives of our parents and grandparents are different from our lives today. We have been acting social scientists as we gather and analyze all of this information and we have learned so much as you can see in the pictures below.

Big Ideas

· The cultures of my family and other families are similar and different.
· Families change over time.
· People around the world live in families.  These families are similar and different.

Guiding Questions

· What is a family?
· How is my family the same and different from others in the classroom?
· How are families the same and different in the past and present?
· How are families the same and different in other places in the world?  
Some of these big ideas and guiding questions will be addressed in our second case study which will start next week.
