In this lesson, students consider how families grow and change. They complete an activity sheet to create a “quilt” that shows the shape and size of their families. They compare their quilts to show that families are all unique and special. They discuss good things about being part of a family—how their families help them and how they help their families. Then they review some of the ways families may grow and change through the years and in response to life events. They take home a family sheet to help them discuss ways families help their members be healthy.
