Not just useful for family trees, these cute little egg people can be applied to class projects for children's social studies projects too. Does your child know where they are in the family structure? These easy to understand, family tree charts, tools and diagrams can help catalog the family structure. Your child will love learning about their genealogical history.
Print the charts as large as possible on heavy-duty paper. Cut out the extra people shapes then paste them in the appropriate places in the family hierarchy. For ideas on period costumes for designing your own egg people from the blank egg template refer to the Folk Costumes links here.
Check the Pod People for different costumes for world cultures. I initially placed the pod egg people on this page but soon realized the pod people would fill out the family tree page and crowd out charts and forms, so I moved them all to this page and will soon be adding lots more pods.Family tree charts are great tools for helping children visualize the family structure which may provide comfort by giving children structure and comfort about familial connections.
Decorate the ancestry diagram with markers or Crayons for an extremely rewarding and educational project for children. Give them a memory they will treasure for a lifetime.
How to use these family tree charts to Track Your Family Tree.
I have included an adopted family tree as suggestion for arranging a family tree chart when children are adopted and/or the family has in-laws, ex-laws and out-laws in the clan.
Family tree charts are great tools for helping children visualize the family structure which may provide comfort by giving children structure and comfort about familial connections.
Topics of discussion might include question and answer story starters such as:
NOTE: It is very important to print all images exactly the same size. That way you can be certain that all the extra people shapes will be the same size as the people shapes on the tree chart.
These images are extremely large, width= 2000px height= 1500px. Click on the image to view in large form without page formatting.
