E. T. A LOCAL WAY OF LEARNING


Title: CLASS SOCIOGRAM

Author: Jane Ducey
Eulalie R. Rivera Elementary School

Grade Level: 3-6

Concepts: Disciplines:
2. Ecosystem 1. Social Studies
3. Carrying Capacity 2. Art
11.Individual Acts 3. Language Arts

Objective:

Students shall make an attractive bulletin board display which shows the
birthplaces of the student and his/her parents at a glance, and the composition
of the class as a whole.

Rationale:

Since 1960 the population of the Virgin Islands has more than tripled; between
1835 and 1950, native born residents comprised roughly 70-80 percent of the
population, while today the resident-born ratio is less than 40 percent.
Students seem to enjoy this "pictograph" of their roots and want the display to
remain on the bulletin board a long time. No two classes are ever the same.

Materials Needed:

Construction paper, the colors black, green, and red make a smashing display
against a background of yellow. Leaf shaped patterns. A black felt pen, stapler.
Before you can construct the tree, you will need to know from each student where
he/she was born, and where each of his/her parents was born.

Activity:

Cover the bulletin board with yellow construction paper. Several students can
work together to draw a fat Baobab tree trunk with as many branches as there are
islands of birth of students and parents. Each student will cut out three
leaves, using the pattern, one in red for his place of birth, and two in green
for his parents' birth places. He will then write his own first name on
each leaf. The tree will be labeled West Indies on the trunk. Limbs to be
labeled with the names of the islands or place of birth of each child and each
parent. The student will then staple his three leaves on the proper branches.
See picture.
