What will life on Earth be like a century from now? In our Future House class, students imagine and design a Lego model of a home they design for the year 2118. First, they study what daily life was like one hundred years ago and then pivot to consider how life might change one hundred years in the future. They study the writings of futurists, learn about new "smart homes" and consider what phones, stoves, sofas, televisions and cars might look like a century from now. Students use math, writing and presentation skills as they draw up an extensive blueprint of their future house, compose a "Day in the Life" story that takes place in 2118 and work with geometric calculations as they design their blueprint. Time travel may not really be possible but our Future House students will find themselves in a different time and place!
