This activity will encourage students to investigate their local area further by asking local older people who have lived in the area for some time about how the local environment has changed over the years.
In this activity you and your students will:
- Write a questionnaire.
- Write to, call or visit local older people.
- Produce a ‘local area over time’ map.
To develop contacts and build relationships with local older people and to discover what your local area used to be like and how it has changed through a person’s lifetime.
