Summary: Day 4 Challenge Instructions
Contact an older relative by phone and ask if they have 30 minutes for a call. They’ll love the opportunity to connect especially during this time of self-quarantining.
You can also do this challenge with an older friend or neighbor if you’re unable to connect with an older relative.
Ask them 10-20 questions. You can use the questions below as a guide or feel free to create your own.
- How did you meet my father/grandfather, mother/grandmother, uncle/aunt, etc?
