Lesson Plan Title : Moms of the Future
Age Range: Grade 6 through grade 8 (Middle School)
Overview and Purpose: Imaginations are used in this activity. Students look at the roles moms have played in the past and the present and are asked to think about what they think it will look like in the future.
Objective: The student will be able to write two to four paragraphs about what they think it will be like to be a mom in the future.
Talk with students about the role of motherhood. Brainstorm with them about ways they think motherhood has changed over the years and ways it has stayed the same. Perhaps show them a short video clip of mothers in the 1940's or 50's.
Divide the class into groups of three. Explain that they are now going to imagine what it will be like to be a mom 100 years from now. Have them write two to four paragraphs about what they think it will be like. Have each group share what they think the changes will be with the class.
Students can take the lesson a step further and act out what they think the changes will be. The rest of the class can watch the skit and then name as many of the changes as they can.
