This project is about
the time our grandparents were as old as us (age 7-12)! We invited the grandparents into
our classrooms and did several interviews. Comparing the reports with the three schools we
discovered similarities and differences in the youth of our grandparents of the three
nations! We researched the period 1930-1945 and we learned from each other and from our
grandparents the period of the great depression and World War Two. But also what kind of
games grandparents liked to play when they were a child, what they liked about their
schools, and much more.

Working together, using
tools as email and video conferencing, we realized that when we study the past and
present, we are learning for the future. "The Way We Were" teaches us that we
experience our lives with many of the same hopes and dreams and challenges and fears...
and yet we experience these in diverse ways at times... making this project a total
learning experience for the young and old alike!
