This guide provides background information and learning activities to help teachers provide educational experiences for elementary students regarding older Americans and the process of aging. There are two major sections. The first section contains a facts-on-aging quiz and discusses facts and myths about older citizens. Examined are feelings and attitudes, family relationships, time, leisure, education, work, transportation, health, and money. The second section contains learning activities. Some examples of suggested activities include the following: Students may read and discuss books, interview senior citizens, role play family relationships, correspond as pen pals with older adults, draw pictures of how they might look as an older person, construct a family tree, and research what some famous people did after the age of 65. The publication concludes with teacher and student bibliographies. (RM)
