Our multidisciplinary research project gives kids a chance to interact with “super seniors” in their community, learning more about other generations and the meaning of legacy. It also turns kids into real scientific sleuths. Students discover firsthand the behavioral habits that contribute to longevity, and then share their findings with scientists on the Blue Zones team.
The Legacy Project is an interdisciplinary study, incorporating various subject areas—science, health, social studies, geography, history, and language arts. The project also allows students to gain interviewing, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills.
To complete the project, please participate in Lessons 1–6. At the end of the project, mail your completed Legacy Project student packets to:
