Am confused! Will or Would?


Am confused! Will or Would?
I recently had a lesson for my students about the future tense with ´will ´
Yet, there is an activity in their course book that I should use in my class but am not sure how to deal with this problem.
The activity is to classify the class into groups and get them ask each other the following questions:
1-What will you do when you leave school?
2-Where will you live?
3-What will you study?
4-What would you like to do?

My problem with the forth question with ´would ´. I already told my students that would is the past of will but here the question is for the future tense. 

How do I explain to my students that ´would ´ can be used for future as well. 
btw I teach 5th grade.

Hope to get answers
