What better way to spend the last day of school than reflecting on the year, sharing laughs, and preserving memories? These 11 time capsule activities will help you do just that!
What makes this time capsule project unique, is that it ALSO increases your chances of staying connected with your students!
Students create artifacts for their time capsules both collaboratively and independently. The teacher adds some mystery artifacts as well. The student is instructed to open the time capsule on their birthday of the following year. They will be able to remember what a great year they had and will also be prompted to contact their teacher! I have had tremendous success with this (see my introduction in the product). I hope you will cherish this idea as much as I do!
