parts of the body are affected by aging. Young children recognize the obvious
signs such as wrinkling skin and graying hair. Other changes that are not as noticeable
include hearing loss, vision changes, and changes in the ability to touch, taste,
and smell. These
changes can affect the way older people open a pill bottle, walk up and down stairs,
or read the newspaper. The goal of the following simulations is for students to
experience how these physical changes may affect daily living.
for Grade Level: K-3 (May be adapted for older students.)
