Activity 5A: Old as I See It Extension: Adding in Word Pictures

Make a collage of pictures which illustrates some of the images students now have of aging. Use magazines, pictures, newspapers, etc. Students should feel free to draw or paint any part of their collage, and to include any descriptive words or phrases. Have students share or describe their collages with the class.
