What can we learn about migrant families? Information through family trees

Spain and Germany found out that pupils in their schools were almost regulary having a migrant background. They examined their own families/ circle of friends and acquaintances. In a very creative way, the participants of this project succeeded in animating drawings from those family trees which can be seen in our film. But this is only one way to deal with this material, below, you find other ways to approach this subject.

Genealogical Trees

In Barcelona, as part of the biology course program in 4th ESO, the pupils were invited to create their own genealogical trees, including the origin of each person. In HEMS the same thing was done.

Origin of high school students: 

A survey About their origins was prepared for all Barcelona students, their parents and grandfathers. The Survey and the results and conclusions are shown.
