Across Generations Activities

Across Generations is one of the Legacy Project's three banner programs. It explores our connections with others,
and encourages closer relationships between generations. Here are the free online Across Generations activities. Try out activities that interest you. Many of the activities can be used with our popular Grandparents Day event planning guide. Activities can also be tied to Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, and the Holidays. Schools can combine activities for literacy, family and family history, memoir writing, and aging/life course lessons. We're always adding more activities, so check back again or subscribe to our e-newsletter to be the first to know when new resources are posted. Create, Connect, Change with the Legacy Project at www.legacyproject.org.
