This resource is perfect for the upcoming Grandparents Day observation, the first Sunday after Labor Day. It is filled to the brim with activities, printables, special projects, and crafts that won't take a lot of time to prepare or break your bank in costs! This Goodies with Grands unit is made for students with grandparents and those with an elderly friend, so most of the activities reference them as Grands. There are activities to do before and during the event; this unit can be used without doing a formal program as well. Many of the activities can be done in class and/or sent home to do with grands, should you not be doing a "program". It is a very flexible and funn-filled unit I know all will love, especially your Grands!
