This history lesson plan, tailored for 9th-grade students in Kazakhstan, uniquely explores the realm of human genetics and DNA by delving into the study and creation of family trees. Through a structured process that involves interviewing relatives and gathering information, students will develop invaluable skills in information synthesis. The culmination of this journey involves the compilation of students’ own family trees. This approach serves to underscore the significance to family traditions while inspiring a sense of appreciation and commitment to preserving and passing on traditional knowledge among the younger generation.
