The Good Ol' Days

Crystal Waites/First Grade/Lincoln Elementary

Driving Question:

How can we teach senior citizens how technology has changed over the decades?

Project Idea:

First grade students will learn how technology has changed over the decades. Then we will teach our grandparents how to use modern day technology. Students will present The Gardens of Talladega Assisted Living with new technology for their center. This money was raised by our first graders at their Sock Hop.

Entry Event

During our entry event, first grade students participated in a school Sock Hop. We charged $2 for entry. Then we offered coke floats for $1. We bought new technology for The Gardens of Talladega Assisted Living with the money we raised.
