Current Events: Sesame Street Turns 40

This week, the beloved children's show Sesame Street turned 40 years old! The New York Times wrote an article called Same Street, Different World. Have a discussion about how the world has changed in 40 years. Here are some guiding questions:
  • What do you remember most about Sesame Street?
  • Who was your favorite character?
  • What is timeless about Sesame Street?
  • What changes have happened in the world over the past 40 years?
  • If you were to make an updated version of Sesame Street, what would it be like? What characters would you include? Where would it take place?
ps.... cookie monster is NOT veggie monster is an urban legend.
