My Family and My Roots: A Film Project

In the framework of the Roots project, students choose a family member or a Jewish person, and use modern technologies to create a film presenting the story of that person. Organizing this project, from identifying the person, collecting photographs, making video footages, writing the script, putting together the film - is entirely the responsibility of the students, with the help of the teacher who guides them through the whole process.

The Roots project is perfect to help your students to discover history through personal stories, and gain useful skills while also having fun. 

In the attachments, you find several materials and guidelines to help you and your students in this project.
