					For the second session of Sprouting Together families gathered and participated in games dealing with cultural changes. The session started out with each group completing a family tradition worksheet. The groups then shared their answers with everyone. The second activity that was conducted was elder song and children song bingo. Each group was given a bingo card with song titles on it. Twenty to thirty second clips were played of different songs from each generation. This continued until a group had BINGO with their song titles. The final activity the group participated in was the “name that person/thing game”. The winners of these activities left with a prize! Below you will find a copy of the family traditions worksheet. Also, the answers to the “name that person/thing game”. Enjoy!!!!
