Interview an older relative or friend

Interview an older relative or friend about the changes that have occurred in his or her lifetime. Consider going to a senior citizen’s home and asking if any of the people there would like to share their stories with you. Prepare your questions ahead of time.

Ask open-ended questions such as:

  • What changes have occured in modes of transportation in your lifetime? How do you feel about these changes?
  • What was your daily routine like when you were my age?
  • What has remained constant throughout your life?
  • Do you have any advice to share about adapting to a changing world?

In your report on your interview(s) discuss which responses were most interesting. Were you surprised by any of the changes described? Why or why not?
