Senior interview gives kids a glimpse into what it was like for older people to grow up up during a completely different time. This rainy day activity for kids allows kids to practice their interviewing skills while learning about seniors' lives.
What You'll Need:
- Tape recorder
Do you think all the good stories will spring out of the future? Think again.
Interview a friendly senior citizen about what it was like growing up in the "old days."
Step 1: Call to arrange a time for the interview.
Step 2: Prepare some questions in advance. You can ask, "How were things different when you were a kid?" "How much did gum cost?" "What did you do for fun?" "What was the scariest thing about life in your early years?" "What really made you laugh?"
Step 3: Record your interview with a tape recorder and take written notes.
Step 4: You can write a story about your interview, and then share your discovery with teachers, parents, and friends.
