Time Capsule beginning and end of year activity for grades 2,3,4,5. This fun time capsule activity is a great way to start and end a school year. Students complete a page of information about themselves and draw an art sample at the beginning and end of the year. You can also photograph your students and include that as well. These pages can be assembled into a booklet for students to keep as a school year memory keepsake. I have used this activity as a first day or first week activity with my 4th graders for years! When I present it to them on the last day of the year, I see amazement on their faces when they see how much they've changed. It has always been a hit!
