Families - A Social Studies Unit

I was productive this weekend - WAHOO!!!

My creative juices were flowing and I made a Families Unit for social studies.  I have been struggling to find resources that I liked to teach about families, so I knew I would be better off just creating my own!

Included in this unit:
Read Aloud Suggestions
Can / Have / Are Chart
Family Portrait Page
My Family is Special - Writing Activity
Family Tree Template
My Family Tradition - Writing Activity
My Family Vacation - Writing Activity
My Family Rules Activity
My Family Responsibility - Writing Activity
My Family Helps - Writing Activity
Timeline Project Directions and Parent Letter

Interested in snagging a copy for free?!  Leave me some bloggy love (before midnight tonight) telling me something you enjoy doing with YOUR family!  I'll choose one winner, so be sure to leave your email address and you might find something waiting for you in your inbox in the morning...

Happy Sunday!!!


  1. We are currently doing a Families unit! Your pack will be a great supplement! We love to travel to different countries as a family. We make it a point to travel to a different country every break we have!


  2. I LOVE having movie night with my family. We are always an the go with our three boys all involved in sports. So it's nice to stay at home and hang out with each other.

  3. I read great children's literature about families to my students! Would love to win!


  4. Even though I'm 29, I still get together with my mom, dad, and brother for family fun nights! :) Usually a movie or show or dinner.

    Your family pack looks great!

  5. We like to play board games.

  6. We love to ride bikes, go for A family run and watch Dante(bro bro) play soccer!!!

  7. Our family consists of 5 boys ages 11-20 who are all heavily involved in sports. To spark their interest in reading/writing/math, I post a daily Question or Word Problem of the Day on the refrigerator (their favorite appliance) and they answer it on the dry erase board. I try to make these relate to their lives and activities. They love it, and I actually get some very creative answers!

  8. How could I get a copy?
