Grade 7 Religion/Family Life Scrapbook Assignment


This project is designed to get you thinking about your own thinking. Who you are is very much
determined by how you think, and how you think is influenced by your personal experience and
knowledge. The following descriptions will help you to complete each assignment. Specific lessons will
also be taught surrounding certain topics.

PERSONAL COMPONENT (Family Life)

Title Page

Like the cover of a book, your title page has to be an attention ‘grabber’ that makes the reader want to
open your scrapbook and continue reading it.

It needs to include a title, (i.e. ‘My Grade 7 Year’, or ‘All About Me’), your name, visuals that represent
you.

All About Me

Imagine that you are being interviewed and this is your chance to tell the world anything unique and
interesting about you! This page is the introduction to your scrapbook as a whole, so think of it like an
overview of who YOU are!

Things to Write About:

● What you like to do


● Personal Information: Your full name, how your parents decided on your name, your birth date
and place, etc.
● Your hobbies
● Family Information
● Cultural information – special traditions with your family etc.
● Interesting things you have done, places you have traveled

Goals

Our lives have many different aspects to them and therefore our goals also need to be varied. Your job
for this page is to set goals for at least ​five ​of the following areas of your life. Make sure that you think
these through. Think about what you want out of your life, and how you plan to achieve what you want.
Some goals are short term and some are long term. Think about how you will know when you have
achieved them. Everyone has different goals and want different things, so make these personal. Be sure
to explain each goal in detail, so that your objectives are clear.
Name​: _____________________________ Date​: ____________________________

Set goals for 5 areas of your life below:

● Family relationships
● Academic growth
● Financial goals
● Intellectual growth
● Organizational skills
● Physical growth

All About My Family and Friends

Family and friends are very important in everyone’s life (even your pets!)

Things to include on this page:

● What does family mean to you


● Provide ‘stats’ on family members (full name, what they like, birthdays, likes, dislikes etc.)
● What special things does your family do
● Why is family so important
● Do you have any special bonds?
● What plans do you have for your future family

Birthday Page

This page is dedicated to your special day – the day you were born!

Things to include:

● Interesting events or facts surrounding your birth
● What happened in the world during your birth year/month/day
● Your horoscope sign and how it relates to your personality

Name​: _____________________________ Date​: ____________________________

*Also include a paragraph that talks about what it means to get older, and how you feel about getting
older and growing up.

What the Future Holds

Have you ever wished you could see into the future and know what is in store for yourself and the
world? Not only do we all have our own personal hopes, goals and dreams, but we also have a vision of
what the world will be like in the future.

This is your opportunity to examine your thoughts about what the future will be like. Your writing will
focus on what you think the future will be like and what you hope the future will be like. Accompanying
visuals should reflect the content of your writing.

Things to include will be your thoughts on at least 6 of the following in the future:

● How you will be, look like, act, etc. in the future, and what will be important to you
● Technology
● Social Issues (poverty, famine, racism, discrimination, population)
● Environment
● War and Peace
● Medical Science
● Space Exploration
● Religion
● Popular Culture (Fashion, Music, Movies, etc.)

Humour Page

We all need laughter in our lives and this page is dedicated to humour! For this page, you get to pick
from 3 options! Make sure that you have a detailed and creative response for whichever one you pick.
Feel free to do a combination of all 3!

1. Select one cartoon character that you think represents your personality. Describe why you
relate to this character, and what similar qualities you share. You will be expected to
represent the character by drawing them, or gluing several cut outs on your page showing
the cartoon character.
2. You may be one of the lucky ones who has a talent for drawing and therefore, you may
choose to create your own comic strip. Explain how this strip reflects aspects of your life and
your personality.
3. This is a writing option. Reflect on the importance and value of humour in our lives. What
makes you laugh? What kinds of things do you find humorous? How important is a good
sense of humour? Why do people laugh and animals don’t? Or do they also laugh? What
does someone’s laughter tell you about him or her? Are there different types of laughter?
How does laughter affect our daily lives?

Favourite Activities

On this page you have two parts you have to complete.

1. You need to list your top ten activities that you like to do. You need to include pictures, graphics,
and other visuals to represent what you like to do.
2. For your written component you need to talk about the value of time. As you get older I am sure
that you are realizing that time seems to pass more quickly. Use the following questions to help
guide your writing.
a. Why is having some time on your hands a luxury?
b. What is your time schedule this year and how have things changed as you progress from
primary to junior to intermediate.
c. Is your life simpler or more complicated now?
d. Why is time so important?

f. How do you make sure you have some spare time?
g. Have you had to make some important decisions this year based solely on the element
of time this year?
h. How do we learn to juggle life and deadlines, and are deadlines important?
i. What do you find steals your valuable time? What can you do to change this?

write up about your teachers, and any information about St. Alphonsa School that you think
is interesting or important.
▪ Teachers shape our lives every day and this can happen in and outside of the classroom. As
we travel through life we meet ‘teachers’ along the way, and under many circumstances.

Questions to Answer

they had such an impact on your life?

Name​: _____________________________ Date​: ____________________________

Fads and Fashions

What’s hot and what’s not? Styles, trends, fads, and fashions are constantly changing. You are to write
about how fads and fashions play a role in today’s world. Speak from a teenager’s point of view. What
trends are considered to be “cool” and what styles, labels, item, etc… are really considered desirable by
teens of today. Here are some questions and ideas to guide you:

● Discuss your personal feelings about fashion


● What do you like to wear and why?
● What stores are popular?
● What outfits are the trend right now?
● How important is it to you to have the latest trends?

hairstyles, new hobbies, music, and cars.

The Perfect Day

you want! Make sure you explain ​why​ you choose to do everything. The sky is the limit so have fun – oh,
and stay appropriate!

● What would you choose to do?


● Where would you choose to go?
● With whom would you choose to spend this time with?

Name​: _____________________________ Date​: ____________________________

Music and Movies

Think about the gift of music and movies. I can’t imagine human beings not being able to enjoy and
express themselves through music and film.

● What is your favourite type of music? What is your favourite song?

Create a Crossword and/or Word Search

Use a word search or crossword puzzle maker website to assist you in creating this page.

Teen Issues

Being a teenager today brings with it many challenges; some which have always existed, and some
new ones that were never a concern for your parents. During these critical teen years, you will find
yourself in situations where you will be forced to make life changing decisions. This page is designed to
open your eyes a little and to get you to start thinking about what the responsible choices will be for
you.

Many of you already have what it takes to make the right decision, yet some of you may not always
choose to take the right path. This decision to go the wrong way may stem from peer pressure, self-pity,
rebellion against authority, rebellion against your parents, friends, stress, addiction etc… Remember
that whatever path you choose to take, you will have to live with the decisions you make and sometimes
these choices will affect the rest of your life.

In the fast paced world of today’s teenager, there is sometimes not enough time to properly consider
the consequences of your actions. It is easy to feel invincible and unstoppable when you are at the
prime of your young life, but it is imperative that you do well in life. The following is a list of some issues
Name​: _____________________________ Date​: ____________________________

that all of you may face to some degree or another in the upcoming years of high school, college,
university and the workforce. Some of you may even be faced with these issues right now.

Teen Issues continued

▪ Drugs
▪ Smoking
▪ Drinking
▪ Relationships
▪ Peer Pressure
▪ Abuse
▪ Parental Pressure and Expectations
▪ Fear of Failure
▪ School – where do I fit in?
▪ Friends and how they change; should I move on or hang on?
▪ Harassment

Ode to Grade 7

An ode is a poem written to praise, respect, applaud, and glorify a particular person, place, thing, ideal,
event, situation, etc… It honours the “subject” and “puts it on a pedestal”. It is also written to keep
memories alive.

To write your ode to grade 7, you need to reflect upon all the events of the ten months in Grade 7.

▪ What have you learned?


▪ What have you gained?
▪ What were the best times, and what were the worst?
▪ How have your grade 7 experiences helped your intellectual, emotional, spiritual, mental, and
social growth, health and well-being?
▪ What do you want to remember for the rest of your life?

Your ode can be written in a rhyming format or in free verse. Choose what works best for you to express
yourself effectively. Visually, make sure that you represent what is in your ode as well. Represent your
feelings from the first day of school to the last day of school.

Remember​: This is your scrapbook page so make it memorable.
