Questions About Remote Learning?

Activity Overview

Teens are constantly challenged in making decisions. (Should they try out for a team? Join a club? See friends? Do homework?) We want them to make the best choice every time, because even little decisions may have unforeseen consequences. Developmentally speaking, children are not naturally thinking about the future, instead living in the moment. Setting goals is a great way to help them stay on track and think about the BIG picture. In this activity, students will visualize where they want to be in five years and ten years. This will provide them with big picture milestones that they can work toward while creating their ideal self!
