Product Description
Help your students have some research fun and informative writing fun with learning and writing about time capsules.

This 4-page printable writing activity combines HISTORY and WRITING.

Students first read about
• time capsules in history, including Egyptian pyramids and the city of Pompeii
• the etymology of time capsule
• the background and contents of the time capsule created for the 1939 New York World’s Fair

Then they WRITE about contemporary items that they would include in a time capsule of today.

Also included is a list of ideas for further research.

This classroom-tested activity is suitable for middle school and high school classes. Created by Susan Thurman.
