Trinity first-grade students study the seven continents and various countries around the world. They learn about different cultures and customs, gaining an appreciation for all God's children.
For the Heritage Assignment, students did some research about their family history and chose a specific country or state to represent on Heritage Day. Next, the students wrote a paragraph about their family's heritage including when their family moved to California, languages their family speaks, foods their family likes to eat, and their favorite family traditions.
Each student presented this information as a speech to their peers and special guests. It is a fun learning experience and a great way to get to know more about the first-graders' family backgrounds.
