Activity “MAPS & ORIGINS”
This activity was developed for being carried out on the rooms the weeks that the elderly people were sick. Nevertheless, since we didn’t use it with all of them, and on Tuesday just three people came down, we recycled it and used it again.
|NAME||MAPS & ORIGINS|
|DESCRIPTION||We will show the elderly people where our countries are within Europe, how far they are from Greece. Also, inside our countries, which region we belonged to.|
|MATERIALS||Maps printed on white paper, markers.|
|GOALS||Since the maps are written with Greek alphabet, the elderly can read, identify different countries and recall memories or knowledge that they have from the past (wars, historic events, relatives living in some of the countries). We work long term memory here and sustained attention.|
