Has your 6th grade granddaughter or grandson, son or daughter, been asking you questions about the family lately? If the answer is yes, it's because our 6th grade students are working on a lesson in cultural anthropology. That's where they do their own fieldwork to learn about cultural variations. Each student creates their own questions and interview their parents and grandparents to record oral history. They will take that information and organize it into a poster and presentation about their immediate family. The posters along with maps and graphs of their family ancestry will complete the 6th grade unit on cultural anthropology.
