Grade 2 Science (NSO) : Understanding family tree

Family Tree

One of the topics in NSO which is pretty confusing is understanding the relationship among individuals in a family.

The questions are never direct and the kid needs to have a good understanding to attempt these questions.

2.Play time : After the kid has gone thru the family tree a few times. Make an empty family tree and ask her to put in the names of the family members with the relations.

3.Worksheets: Some practice worksheets for reinforcing the concept
