This writing activity gives students the opportunity to write letters to their future self. Students will write a variety of letters on different topics and will seal the letters inside envelopes to be opened on a particular date or event. I allowed my students to determine when they can open each envelope in the future. I encouraged them to choose dates such as their 30th birthday, high school graduation, day of first job, and other memorable times and milestones. I was a bit surprised to see milestones such as, “When I get a girlfriend”. I did make a requirement of waiting at least five years before opening any of the letters, because they were choosing dates such as the end of the school year.
