I use this activity in my classroom on our VIP day (this is often a grandparent but can be anyone in case a grandparent is not available). The activity is used to tie into our social studies standard of learning about the past. Students work with their VIP to write or draw a picture or both of the items listed back when the VIP was a student in school (then) and now. There are 2 different versions, one where the then and now are verticle and the other is horizontal. My students really enjoyed learning about their VIP's favorite activities and were suprised some of them were the same!
