Age to Age

This project conducted on-site research at a nursing home in Coffeyville, Kansas which has an all-day kindergarten classroom on-site. Students interact with nursing home residents on a daily basis with those elders participating gaining meaningful roles within the classroom setting. Center on Aging staff wrote a guidebook with information on how to replicate the project in other nursing homes. The guidebook  titled "Uniting Wonder with Wisdom: An Intergenerational Classroom Replication Guide," is available on the Pioneer Network website.
