A family tree is a diagram that shows your ancestors. They are the people in your family who were born before you arrived. These people are very special because they are part of your life and part of your own personal history. Draw a family tree diagram and glue pictures of your family members on its different branches. Place the oldest at the top and the youngest at the bottom. You and your brothers and sisters will be at the bottom. Next, write the name of each person beneath his or her picture. You have just made your own family tree!
