Our Traditions Project

In writing about your favorite family tradition, please consider the following questions:
  • What is your favorite tradition?
  • On what day does this event take place? Is it related to a religious holiday?
  • Where is it usually held? Do you have to travel far to get there?
  • Why do you like it?
  • What's your favorite part?
  • What do you do for this tradition? If there’s food involved, what food is included?
  • When did your family first begin this tradition? Is it fairly new or generations old? If it’s been going on for generations, does that make it more special/important to your family?
  • Do you know who first started this tradition?
  • Who participates? How many people generally attend? Is it just immediate family that’s involved in this tradition? Extended family? Friends? Neighbors?

The Presentation

Our ideas for how to share this tradition with everyone:
  • To type it then leave space in the middle for a picture, but wrap the words around it.
  • Drawing a picture. Creating a border. Adding color. Decorating according to the tradition.
  • Get pictures from the last time you celebrated
  • Diorama, drawings, pictures,slide show
  • Make a book with a picture on one side and the writing on the other.
  • Put a picture on the top of your paper and one or two at the bottom to keep visual interest.

  • Can we change the color of the font?  Yes.
  • Can we change the font type? Yes.
