The concept of intergenerating was examined through the introduction of aging appreciation activities in five elementary classrooms in the same school. A weeklong module was developed to determine if aging appreciation would be enhanced by the module used in the selected elementary classrooms. Students completed introductory and final questionnaires before and after presentation of the module, respectively. Descriptive statistics were used to describe the general nature of the participating groups, and t tests were computed to determine differences between pretest and posttest means and to determine interclassroom variations. Possibilities for future research are discussed.
