Aging: A Kindergarten Curriculum.
Storck, Patricia A.; Davies, Barbara K.
This paper presents a curriculum for kindergarten children designed to increase children's understanding of the aging adult, make them aware of the likenesses and differences between the young and old adult, and encourage them to develop a friendship with an older adult. An introduction discusses the attention recently being given to aging and society's treatment of the aged. The curriculum presented includes (1) ideas for involving elderly individuals in the classroom; (2) guidelines for conducting separate orientation sessions for the aged participants and the students; (3) ideas for helping aged persons and students get acquainted; and (4) descriptions of several types of activities that can be directed by the aging individuals. Activities deal with such subjects as likenesses and differences, feelings, friends, pets and food. Included in each activity section are objectives, detailed directions, and lists of useful books and film strips. (SB)
