Heritage Box

The Edible Schoolyard Project
Berkeley, CA

We are going to make a family heritage box – a keep sake box that contains items that represent your family, your culture and history. First you will watch a video of an artist talking about how she uses art to honor her culture and family. Next, you will connect with your family around food, music, and stories. Then you will create a heritage box and add some of their stories to your box.
Student Learning Goals & Objectives: 
  • This activity supports students in practicing reflection by asking them to examine family artifacts and stories and reflect on what was collected and discussed.
