Family Tree Template
Helping Scouts look back at their family heritage fits in with the Turn Back the Clock Theme program theme or the Genealogy Merit Badge. Scouts can download this Family Tree Template to write in their family back to their great grandparents.
When doing this activity, I always told Scouts to feel free to write other names on the paper outside the boxes. They put siblings next to their own names, cousins and aunts and uncles around the edges. This is their story. The template is just to help them get started. Every family is unique and they should make this activity their own.
