HS YOUTH: Intergenerational Activity

More than ever kids need to spend time with older people in the congregation. What can you do about it? How about creating an event where the kids serve lunch to the older generation? Here are some ideas of what to do:
  • Have some music from the 30's, 40's, and 50's playing.
  • Take special care in choosing some trivia questions on the table that may bring back some memories. 
  • Have seats for the kids to join them at the tables for dinner or at least for dessert.  
  • Come up with some interview questions for the kids to ask to help create discussion.
Some questions might include:
  1. Did you grow up in the country or in the city?
  2. What kinds of games did you play?
  3. What kinds of things would you do with your best friend?
  4. How did you spend your free time as a teenager?
  5. What are some of your greatest memories of high school?
  6. What are some of the greatest inventions that you have seen over the years?
  7. What did you think of everything that happened in the 60's?
  8. What was your favorite job?
  9. What was your favorite game to play as a kid?
  10. Do you remember when you got your first TV? What did you like to watch?
  11. What was your favorite vacation? Where would you like to have gone that you didn't?
  12. Did you like to dance? What kind of dances did you do?
  13. Where would you go and what would you do on a date?
  14. What kind of chores did you have to do? 
  15. If you could share any piece of wisdom with high school kids today, what would it be?
