This is a really fun assignment that I made last year, and my kids LOVED it! I will send them their completed packet 5 years from when they wrote it! I did a similar assignment as a sophomore in HS, and it was so COOL to read what I wrote 5 years before! It's something they'll save forever!
The assignment asks students to fill in the blanks about their current life (bucket list items, biggest fears, favorite book, goals, and much, much more!)
This is great for multiple grades (middle and/or high school)! I did it with my 10th graders...they were really into it!
I also asked each of my students to bring in 50 cents for a stamp for when I go to send these letters in 5 years (with 150 kids it would cost a small fortune for stamps, and every kid is perfectly fine with handing over two quarters :)
