Sometimes the best way to find out about the past is to ask questions to those around us. 

Here are some questions you could ask parents, aunties and uncles and grandparents. 


1. What was your favourite toy or activity as a child? 

2. What was one of your favourite shows as a child? 

3. What’s one of your favourite memories from childhood? 

4. What did you want to be when you grew up?

5. What’s the best place you’ve travelled? 

6. If you could have lived in a different era, what would it be? 

7. What job have you done? 

8. What’s your favourite technological invention that occurred in your lifetime? 

9. What was your hometown like (where you grew up)?

10. Do you have a favourite age/stage in life? 

11. If there’s any piece of advice that you feel you need to share, what would it be?

12. What was your favourite/ usual meal you when you were my age? 

13. What is still the same about your life when you were my age and my life?

14. What is different about your life when you were my age and my life now?
