Who Are You? Who Am I?: Social Science with Seniors


What do psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists and economists have in common? They are all trying to understand why people and communities behave as they do. This project taught kids about the social sciences and how they focus on learning about people using rigorous scientific methods. The kids then got to be social scientists themselves by joining up with local seniors and conducting a research study comparing the seniors’ childhood and chores with that of today’s youth. They presented their findings at one of our club meetings.
