Learning about your family history and genealogy is a wonderful study to do in your homeschool. Older students can turn this into a very detailed research project that you can give them credit for. Your little ones can practice their writing skills as they write about their family and parents and fill out fun family worksheets. You can really incorporate all ages into learning about your family history. This would be a fun project to work on throughout the year. You can even build a family tree notebook! The ideas are really endless!
