Intergenerational Activities for Teaching About Aging and the Aged in Health, Physical Education and Social Studies.
Thrasher, Linda; And Others
It is proposed that the most effective technique for teaching about aging and the aged at the secondary level is through the use of intergenerational activities, providing opportunities for the interaction of young and old. Including older adults in various class activities is suggested. Using these individuals as guest instructors and aides in the classroom is offered as one way to provide intermingling of the generations. Sport activities, health education, and social studies are pointed out as areas of interest to both young and old. (JD)
