The purpose of this study was to begin to understand what exactly occurs
when young children and adult day care participants interact together during
planned intergenerational activities. Data were recorded through field notes,
video tapes, activity plans and evaluations and through the assessment of the
interaction by using an adaptation of the Early Childhood Classroom
Observation Scale. The presentation of discoveries includes a description of
each of the 12 activities implemented between the two groups, the
environment, interactions between staff and participants and interactions
between children and adults. The findings indicate implications for practice
as well as future directions for research.
