After second-, fourth-, and fifth-graders (n=53) participated in an intergenerational program, descriptors for the elderly used by second- and fourth-graders were significantly more positive. Analysis of fourth-graders' journals showed that they discovered similarities with elders, formed meaningful relationships, and actively sought continuing contact with them after the program. (SK)
