This introductory kit is ideal for interviewing a parent, grandparent or grandfriend in a family or a school setting, and for use in intergenerational programs and seniors centers/facilities.
It can be used by adults and children. Encourage intergenerational interaction and learning by having a young person interview an older adult!
The kit includes a comprehensive list of Life Interview Questions, tips for doing an interview, a fill-in-the-blanks Life Story booklet, and a Family Tree chart.
The Life Story booklet is an easy-to-use, simple way to gather basic life information. It's also appropriate for therapeutic use with older adults with memory loss or cognitive impairment.
This kit is a great starting point for the Legacy Project's annual Listen to a Life Contest and our Life Statement initiative.
Life Interview Kit sheets are loose and may be photocopied for personal use or for use in a classroom.
