Traveling to the Future

Traveling to the Future lesson plan

How will you go places in the future? Use your imagination to think of new possibilities!

  • 1.

    Research and discuss various types of transportation and how they are used. Imagine yourself in a city or planet in the future. How would you get from one place to another?

  • 2.

    On white paper, use Crayola® Markers to draw yourself using transportation of the future. What does the vehicle look like? Where would you go?

  • 3.

    Use Crayola Scissors to cut fabric for your clothing in the drawing. Attach the fabric with Crayola School Glue.

  • 4.

    Cover a table top with recycled newspaper. Use Crayola Washable Watercolors and Paint Brushes to tint areas of your drawing. Use plenty of water with a small amount of paint for a light wash, or less water and more paint for darker, more saturated colors. Dry flat.


  • Students research various types of land, sea, and air transportation, including current modes and those anticipated in the near future.
  • Children imagine future types of transportation and predict where they might travel in these vehicles.
  • Students represent their concepts of future travel modes and destinations in original artwork.


  • Create a collage of your ideas about future cities or farms. Write stories about vehicles and adventures in them.
  • Research today's land, sea, and air transportation. How fast can high-tech vehicles go? What do they look like? Where could you ride in them?
  • Design a collection of future clothing. Glue garments on poster board for display.
