Journaling is an important way for students to get in touch with their own thoughts and emotions.  As students journal about the future, they’ll begin to examine the amazing world that we live in a little more closely—as well as the potential for greater things that lies ahead.  Thinking about future possibilities in the world can be exciting for students, but it will also inspire many kids to look ahead to their own futures.  Developing ideas of what their future lives will look like enables kids to plan and set goals for themselves.
