Tapping into the Experiences of Senior Citizens

Through casual talk and structured interviews, 6th graders tap into the wealth of their senior pals' experiences. They write descriptive essays and narratives based on conversations with relatives or neighbors. They read selected passages on aging and write their own advice and reflections about age and wisdom. Using technology, students also construct a quality tri-panel display for a final presentation.
