PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Have you ever wondered how long you will live? With this lesson, students will find out! Scientists, scholars, and psychologists have long thought about what impacts a life's longevity. Recent research has reveled potential clues as to what may be the keys to living not only a lengthy life, but a fulfilling one also. Your students will come to understand what science and psychology are saying about the improvements one can make on life, possibly enabling them to make it to their 100th birthday and beyond!

Throughout the lesson students will:

1) Respond to a Bell Ringer that asks students to consider the oldest person they ever knew and describe their lifestyle.

2) Review a chart of Erikson's last four stages of psychosocial development and discuss specific activities and behaviors that would be conducive to successful development in the adult years.

3) Read an article about "super-centarians", people who make it well beyond 100 years of life, and the possible keys to an extremely long life.

4) Take an online life calculator that determines scientifically, based on your personal demographics and life habits, how long they will live.

5) Record the results of the life calculator and what can be done to increase the length of one's life.

6) Conclude with an exit ticket, asking them what they learned from the day's lesson.
