I LOVE these ideas. They are all so valuable and will help students learn to listen for and value the stories in all the lives around them.
Oh, I wonder if it would be exciting for the students to write a narrative account of the stories their grandparents or others tell them and then scan some photos to help tell the story. They could then record the narration in a program like PhotoStory, make it into a movie and send it to those they have interviewed.
