Activity Day Ancestor Cards

We did a Family History Project for Activity Day this week. Each girl gave me a four generation chart in advance. I made cards with their pictures on the front and a place for them to write each ancestor's name and birth date on the back. They were printed on perforated business cards.

We divided into two smaller groups to play Go Fish with our cards. After the game everyone separated the cards out again and took home their own cards.

It was fun seeing how some of the girls were named after their ancestors. Other girls noticed how family names had been passed along through the years. One of the girls had several grandfathers with names that today would be only used for women. Who knew Claire was once a man's name?
