Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can assign a “Family History” project in which students interview their parents and family members about their family history. Following the interviews, teachers can instruct students to complete a family tree within the Ancestry app.
  2. Teachers can assign research projects about historical individuals. As part of the project, teachers can have students complete the historical individual’s family tree within the Ancestry app.
  3. Please note: When assigning this project, teachers need to designate the amount of branches the family tree must include.
  4. Students can be instructed to use the Ancestry app to diagram the familial relationships between literary characters or Greek/Roman gods.
