A Scavenger Hunt for Ancestors (with Anna Scheutz)
It can be hard for children to relate to the stories of their ancestors. In a creative approach by long-time community member, Anna Scheutz, children get a chance to engage with the stories of their ancestors in a team-based scavenger hunt.
Anna applied her considerable experience as a youth leader to developing something that would be equally fun for young children, teens, and grown adults. Her strategy involves a combination of challenges that bring all ages of the family together with physical activity and questions delivered on mobile web pages.
In this Project Recipe event, Anna will share how she went about putting the program together and key pointers about why it works. Our program includes her talk as well as a Q&A session.
At the conclusion, we’ll share the Project Recipe (a written summary of how you can reproduce the approach with your own family,) and a recording of the session. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss the project and variations with other participants in our community forum. This program is free and held via Google Meet. Join us, won’t you?
