Created by educators Naomi Baumgarten & Curricula team. Lifeforce in Later Years; www.L-i-L-Y.org | T.917-775-1199

Warm-Up Activity

Write on the Board, “Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother”. Ask students if this idea should be expanded to include older seniors in general and why.

Focused Activity
Read one of the books included HERE about a cross-generational relationship. Write a sentence that captures a main learning had by the reader about seniors. Then, create illustrations, using one or various media, that might capture this idea. The sentence should be printed beneath the finished work of art. The class could create an exhibition for the school and for viewing by families, including senior members. Photos of the submissions can be sent to Lifeforce in Later Years web master (info@L-i-L-Y.org) for inclusion on its website.
