Migration Geography activity for G110 Introduction to Human Geography students

January 9, 2004

Students interview senior citizens from the Indianapolis Senior Citizen center about their historic and ancestral migrations so as to better understand the geography of migration. The Senior helps the student with the exercise while the student creates an excel spread sheet and relevant maps detailing all the residential moves in the life span of the Senior as well as ancestral moves. The document created can be added to the senior’s genealogy charts while at the same time the student has a learning opportunity. In some of the pairings this activity has linked the elder with a student that continues beyond the course.
