This project is great for the start of the year. It helps the students get familiar with one another by showing others what they want to be known for. The students are asked to bring a box or something that would resemble a time capsule. They are then asked to select a minimum of 5 items to put in the time capsule. This can be a project they work on at home or in the classroom. Upon completion the students are asked to present their time capsule to the class.
