Title: Create a Fun, Fictional Family

Create a fun, fictional family in the classroom. This should be a humorous activity. View the family signs and pronoun video, then proceed with the activity.

They will be trying to identify family members and relationships by asking yes/no and ‘wh’ questions with personal and possessive pronouns and answering factual information.
