October 1st is International Day to celebrate older adults. It is a day dedicating to honoring and caring for the world’s elderly. (In New York State, October 1st is “Love An Elder” Day.) Students could make posters advertising this day around the community. Students could be asked to create their own class-wide, school-wide or community-wide Day to celebrate, for example, create a potluck lunch, inviting grandparents and great grandparents. The momentum could continue all through the year as elders can be invited to special celebrations, including a religious occasions like Christmas, Chanukah or Kwanza, Thanksgiving, and more. Students might plan a sing-a-long, cook a meal, or write a play. They can also make cards to send to their own relative or senior neighbor.
