    Supplies Needed

    Tip:

    • Have students write about the picture they chose to include in the picture frame. First, have students brainstorm a list of descriptive words to convey what is happening in the picture. Then, have students write a paragraph using the descriptive words.
    • Ask students to bring in a photograph of their family to include in the picture frame. Or have students draw a picture of their family. Explain a family tree and model one for your students. Then, have students create a family tree on a sheet of paper, going back two generations.
    • This picture frame makes the perfect gift! Have students create the picture frame as a gift for someone special. To go along with the gift, encourage students to write a four-line poem to give to that person.
