Write a letter to future students in a history class. Explain what it is like to live now. What would you be interested in knowing if you were them? Daily routines? What houses are like? Food? School? You should consider how much they’ll know about things you take for granted. Will they know what cars are? Will they have just heard of them without actually getting to experience them? Telephones? Malls? Books? Will some of these things be forgotten in a few hundred years? Make sure to explain anything that might be unknown to them.
