Summary

By surveying 529 fifth grade students in eleven Minneapolis schools and 260 senior citizens in nine senior citizens' clubs, this study attempted to answer three questions: (1) How do children feel about senior citizens? (2) How do older people feel about children? and (3) Do they have accurate perceptions of each other? This group of senior citizens and fifth graders had very favorable views of themselves and the other age group. Senior citizens had a somewhat more favorable view of senior citizens than they did of children and the children also held more favorable views of senior citizens than they did of children their own age. Many seniors were unaware of the considerable interest they shared with students in hobbies and other creative pursuits. Other findings are discussed. A questionnaire for fifth graders and one for senior citizens are appended. (BW)
