Create a vibrant classroom display of your students’ families with this easy to implement resource.

An Inclusive Classroom Display Celebrating Families

What makes a family? So many things!

There is no right or wrong way to make a family! The students in your class will have fun celebrating their families in this bright classroom display.

Celebrating Uniqueness

Students will each create a colourful picture frame with characters that represent the members of their families. Some completed frames are included as examples.

Once the photo frame is complete, students will add a photo or drawing of their family. Then display the photo frames on the wall under the three-page banner that reads ‘Families come in all shapes and sizes’.

This is a perfect resource when exploring personal and family history or leading up to Mother’s or Father’s Day.

What Does Family Mean to You?

A lined version of the picture frames is also included as a download option for this resource. Use this version to have students write a small passage that completes the prompt ‘Family is…’

Students could write:

  • the feelings they experience when with their family
  • the activities they like to do as a family
  • the members of their family
  • what family means to them.
