Hi Ashleigh, thanks for your wonderful comments! You are so right about using a name study as a springboard into other units of study. In fact, in my class last year, we went straight from this unit into our immigration and heritage study. It was a natural extension for my students to go from researching where their names come from, to researching where their families come from. (I'm going to blog about our immigration unit at some point later on this year.) All the best - Alycia
