Do you know a lot about the Elderly? Maybe you do, maybe you don't...either way, they are an important part of society, and deserve our attention and respect. Unfortunately, not all of us feel comfortable around senior citizens or have taken the time to get to know anyone age 70 or over but, the good news is...it is within our power to get to know and value our elderly.
In this webquest, you will have the opportunity to become more knowledgeable about the elderly! You will learn ways to develop positive friendships and a better sense of understanding for the elderly and their struggles and life experiences.
After finding this valuable information, you'll create a series of interview questions to ask an elderly person, as well as writing a letter to yourself (to hopefully be read by you when you are 70 years old!).
So, as Oliver Wendell Holmes said, "Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit
playing". Let's have fun learning!
