Where do your grandparents live?

This activity can be done in a couple of different ways.  The first way would be to invite the students in your class to make their own paper doll grandparents and to share with the class where their grandparents live and a little about them - What their favorite things are and what they like to do when spending time with them, etc...  Put each set of paper grandparents up on a bulletin board after they have shared that information with the class.  I like to use ribbon or string to pin point the location and hang the grandparents out from the exact location in case you have more grandparents living in the same area.

Another way to do this would be to have the children decorate their own set of paper grandparents and mail them to their grandparents asking them to take pictures of them in the town they live in.  Grandparents love getting out doing fun things for their grandchildren and you'll be surprised at all the neat pictures that come back to your classroom.  This allows for even more conversation to take place between the child and the grandparent and then the class through the child's presentation, etc...

I like to use the pre-cut doll paper shapes made by CREATOLOGY.  They come in sets of 12 and can be purchased at most craft stores or online.  Be sure to have plenty of craft supplies handy for this project.  You will love what you see being created!

Happy Grandparent's Day!
