Heritage Project

Dear Parents,


The United States of America is made up of people from all around the world. This diversity makes us who we are. It gives depth and dimension to the words “We the People”.


Today, your child is bringing home a paper doll. Their assignment is to decorate this doll to represent them and their heritage – ancestral homeland, family traditions, ethnicity, etc. You may use any materials that adhere to the paper except glass or any other sharp material. BE CREATIVE! (Keep in mind that these dolls will be hung in the hallway.)


Your child will be asked to orally present their dolls. Each child must be able to explain the meaning of their doll's decorations/clothing/symbols to the class. The children may have written notes to refer to when they present their report.


This project will be graded on neatness, the oral presentation (your child's explanation of the decorations), the correctness of the information (ie: The correct order of colors on the flag.), and following directions. The project is due Friday, January 26, 2018.Your child's name(first and last) and class (2A/2B) must be on the back of the doll. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.


I look forward to seeing all the unique and diverse expressions of who you are!


All the best,

Mrs. McDermott
