Last Friday we watched Knowing, an amazing thriller starred by Nicholas Cage. At the beginning of the movie a time capsule is buried to be removed 50 years later. Junior 3 students were asked to draw what the future would be like in that time. Imagine they asked you to write a message for kids your own age living in 2061, what would you say to them? Comment on that.

    It was a good movie for entertainment and also to reflect on this question: Is there any life on other planets? Apart from that it was a good movie to see so: I want another one!

    Boys and girls of year 2061,
    Hi. 50 years ago I went to to a school named Las Cumbres. I think now it has changed a lot or maybe it doesn’t exist. How do you see year 2011 now? In this time we were starting to have 3d technology and high definition movies. What is technology like now? I wonder if you could answer me.


  6. Mechi Anelo says:

    I’m Mechi and I want to tell you what I love of 2011: technology is amazing! the Apple things are fantastic…..I have an ipod touch…..but there are a lot of things more! The cars don’t fly and use oil.The people live about 70-80 years.Do people live more years in 2061?In the future I think that food will be pills.Isn’t it?

    My name is Delfina D´alessandro and when you reed this I will be 73 years old.When I was your age I liked to go to buy clothes, eat chocolate and talk (a LOT) with friends…I´m sure that you think it is boring and that today you go to the Moon to have dinner! That would have been very exciting in the past!
    Good luck,

    My name is Julia.Now in 2011 I’m 12 years old. I study in a school named “las cumbres”. I know that this name is a little bit wierd but I like the school, I hope that in the future you have no schools. IT’s not that it is bad but…. you know no child likes school SO much.You have homework and if you don’t do it you are in a really BIG problem,because teachers get mad with you sometimes, so in conclusion it is better to skip school,convince your parents of not going to school.
    juli !!!

    I’m Pipe and I liked the movie, the ending not so much but it was great. I imagine the future with peace in the world and flying cars and we have to enjoy all the moments we are with friends and family.

  17. Franco Demaria says:

    Hi, I am Franco, and if you see me walking down the street you will probably see a 62 year old man. I don’t know if there are still flying cars in 2061 but you will surely have better technology than ours. Does grass shine at night, do cows fly or something weird like that? Do you still have to do your homework, clean up your room, wash your teeth and take a bath? I hate that. My advice is write a book, have a child, plant a tree and enjoy your life!

  18. josefina says:

    dear kids of 2061:
    I’m josefina and I’m 12. For those who wonder how it is (or was) like in 2011, well its pretty good. We’ve got pretty advanced technology like ipod touches, ipads cellphones cameras ect… I imagine the future with flying cars robots and all those things
    byee see you all in the future xD
