Lesson Plan Text


Will for future predictions Xmas 

Choose a year in the future, write it secretly in your notebook and make predictions about a typical Xmas 

in that year similar to those below, e.g. for the year 2100 you could say “There won’t be any real Xmas 

trees left” and “The Queen’s speech will be in 3D”. After each hint, the other students have to guess 

what year you are describing. If they have difficulty guessing, you can give them other clues like “Not 

even closer”, “No, much later” or “You are getting closer”. 

After they have guessed the year, discuss if they think those predictions will come true or not.
