Modern Family Tree

This is a prezi I use to teach ESL classes about families and relationships. I'd usually watch the first episode of the show before showing them this. Then they could guess the names and have an idea about the relationships.

What makes this a "
modern
" family?
Is it a
normal
family?
strange relationships!
But these are becoming more and more common in today's families!
Let's take a closer look at a few more relationships!
This is Javier. He and Gloria used to be married...
What does that make
Jay
?
They are a gay couple.
Lily is "
adopted
." They are both her
Step-Dads
or
Step-fathers
. However, in this case, they are
the only Dads she has ever known
, so she would call them both Dad!
but now they are
divorced
. He is Manny's
biological
Father.
Jay is Manny's
step-dad
. We use
"step"
to talk about family relationships through marriage, but
not by blood
.
In the same way, Manny is Haley, Alex, and Luke's uncle (
really step-uncle
). However, because they are older than him they probably wouldn't call him uncle.
Haley is 16 and he's 10, yet he's her uncle!! Isn't that funny?
Later, jay and gloria have a baby named
fulgencio joseph "joe" Pritchett
.
Joe is manny's
half Brother
. We use the word half, when
siblings
have
one biological parent in common!


This is only used for
immediate family
between
siblings
. You couldn't say half uncle or half father.
One more relationship that we need to talk about is
in-laws.
Phil's dad is
Frank Dunphy
. His mom has already
passed away
.
What is Frank's relationship to Phil's wife (Claire)?
Phil's Dad (father)
Frank is Claire's
Father-in-law
.
Claire is Phil's
Daughter-In-Law
.
What about Phil's mom? What would her relationship to Claire be?
Mother-In-Law
Okay, so
Mitchell
is claire's Brother.
What is his relationship to Phil?
Mitchell is Phil's
Brother-In-Law!
As you can see, the modern day family is
super
complicated!!
Here's a short quiz to test what you've learned!
