Intergenerational Project Brings Students and Seniors Together

As part of an intergenerational project, fourth-graders in Ms. Amy McNamera’s class are learning about the lives of senior citizens who participate in programs at the Hampton Bays Senior Center.

For the project, students in groups took time to interview the seniors, asking questions about their childhood, their schooling and adult life during three interviewing sessions. They will then write reports on the seniors they interviewed and present them at the senior center in the near future.   

The project is just one of many that students work on throughout the year that tie them to their community and its residents.
