I created a couple of simple notebooking worksheets that will help elementary-aged kids examine. family photos, and even give them a hand in documenting them. The worksheets are identical, except one is for horizontally-oriented photos and the other is for vertically-oriented ones. Click on each image to be directed to a downloadable PDF.
This worksheet would be a lot of fun at family reunions. Give everyone a copy with the same family photo on it and ask each person to create hashtags. Then, read them aloud to everyone. Social media hashtags can get pretty comical at times, and I think the same thing would happen at a reunion. And this is a great way to engage young people at reunions in a 'language' they can understand and relate to.
