Have your students create a family tree tracking just their mother's side of the family. They should have one accomplishment or fact listed about every woman. Encourage them to be creative in the way the information is displayed. Ideas could include: putting each woman's information on a flower or creating a decoration for each woman depending on the accomplishment.
Create a special showing of the trees and invite the moms in to see them. Have the students include photos or written pieces about special memories they have of their moms.
