This lesson allows students to reflect on the significant experiences in their lives and think about the kind of life they want to create for themselves in the future. Students create a map of their life with symbols and brief descriptions. Students share out about the moments that were meaningful to them and brainstorm events they want to make happen in the future. Multiple options on extending the lesson with writing activities are also included. While created for an emphasis on writing, language, speaking, and listening, this lesson can be adapted to multiple subject areas.
