We are going to watch and discuss different clips about the future and you will also get to write a letter to your future self if you have time. The letter will be sent back to you after a year.
The text you write for the yearbook and your speech will be assessed. The letter will not.
For your yearbook contribution, you can choose to write by hand (your classmates and teachers should be able to read it) or on your Chromebook. Your text should be about a page and a half long and should be handed in by Thursday May 23rd.
Here are some tips on what you can include in your contribution to the yearbook:
a. Your best memories of your school year.
b. A time you laughed, or cried.
c. Advice to your classmates for the future.
d. Something you hope you never forget about this time in your life.

f. Something you would like to do all over again.
g. Write about an imaginary class reunion year 2039.
h. A letter from yourself in the future to your classmates.
i. What you want to do in the future.
j. Your högstadiet survival guide for the future year 7's.
