AngelicaGrandletter 5 (child): Respect for elders
  • Read your Special Letter from your grandparent.
  • Prepare your Special Letter:
    Describe what you think are the major changes in a person's life as they become older adults. Identify the problems you think grandparents may have. What skills might actually improve with age? Tell about elderly people you know who have special skills or are very active. What is special about your grandparent? Anything you think is important!
  • For your grandparent's scrapbook:
    Draw a picture of some activity that you think is interesting or would like to see your grandparent try. Write a brief explanation of your drawing.
  • Optional Activities (Choose as many as you want to do):
    Making a Mosaic. Save eggshells; wash and dry. Dip the shells in food coloring, using several colors. Spread them out to dry. Crush the eggshells after they dry. Draw a design on a sheet of paper and glue the colored shells into a mosaic. To do this glue them with their edges almost touching each other.
    Grandpicture Draw a portrait of your grandparent, using pictures you have of him or her. On the back write things you like about your grandparent.
  • Mail your letter and anything else you made to your grandparent.
