I was a little scared going into Grandparent's Day since I was with a much older grade until I remembered the "Old Fart Booth" app on the Ipad - we used for 100th day in Kindergarten but I thought it would be great for this as well - my kids LOVED this!! Best of all it is FREE!
It is basically an aging app and you can add accessories. I limited my students to 2 accessories so that you could still see them. They turned out hilarious!
The top left one is me....sadly I didn't even smile for my picture and I will look extremely stern when older apparently! I discussed previously with my students what would change when they are grandparents and we recorded those and used this sheet below.
They had a great time filling them out with their grandparents and it led to discussions of how today is different than when their grandparents were in elementary school.
Here's a view from our hallway:
The grandparents got such a kick out of these and the students loved working on them together with the grandparents as well! It worked out to be a great way to connect and discuss about the past and the future.
