Kids can sit down with a family member they want to interview, then click Go to start. As they follow along in the game, they are creating a downloadable record of the oral history interview.

Arthur Who Are You Going to Interview

The downloadable record is easy to create – kids just type in who they are going to interview, then can add a picture of the interviewee, if they would like to (pictures are never retained by PBS Kids).
