Students make their own time capsule at the beginning of the year. At the end of the year, they open it up to see how they have changed over the year. This resource includes sheets that students can fill out about themselves.
Talk with the students about how they are going to change and grow over the school year. The time capsule they make at the beginning of the year is like a snapshot of who they are right now. At the end of the school year, they will open the capsule and look at the things they put in it. They will have a chance to see how they may have changed.
