Make learning fun! This generic suitcase activity and fit almost any topic you want to use it for! Best for grades 3-8.

See some suggested ideas below!!

Your students will love having their choice of four cool suitcases that really flip open.


This resource includes 4 generic editable suitcase templates that really open and 13 different fun ways to use them!


Here is what is included:

-Full teacher directions with photos to help you make the flip-open suitcases.

-5 generic (editable) suitcase templates (Add your own topics!)

-Photos of cut and glued suitcase examples

-"Ways to Calm Down" Handout

-Spreadsheet with 14 different "suitcase themed" ideas for using the flip-open suitcases


This suitcase activity was taken from my full-year 3rd grade Health curriculum at: 3rd Grade Full-Year Health Curriculum


Here are the 14 ideas on the spreadsheet.

(These ideas might help you think of a CREATIVE WAY TO USE THESE SUITCASES!!) See English, History, Math, Character Education, and Health ideas here:

1. “Pack Away These Creative Writing Rules” - Write creative writing rules for good writing and then pull out the suitcase out when needed to be reminded!

2. “How to Put a Lid on Stress!” - Cut out “stressors” that cause stress and glue them inside the suitcase.

3. “Math Formula ‘Cheat Sheet’ Suitcase” - Tape right on their desks to open and look at when they need the formula!

4. “’Where will my Future Take Me?’ Suitcase” - This would be perfect to use as an on-going aid. Pull suitcase out whenever you want to have students set a goal!

5. “How to Bring Self-Esteem Wherever You Go" - Write self-esteem tips and cut out and put in the suitcase. Post on a mirror at home!

6. “All Aboard! Tips to Overcome Hardships” - Write and cut out tips for overcoming hardships. Share a hardship you’ve faced with a partner.

7. “Put this Suitcase Under Your Bed” Tips for a good night’s sleep” - Write and cut out sleep tips. Have students take this home and keep it in their bedroom to remind them!

8. “Understanding Emotional Baggage” - Write and put inside the suitcase the emotional baggage that can come with a teen sexual decision.

9. “Get Rid of Anger Baggage!” Have students take an anger survey, then write ways to calm down to cut them out and put in the suitcase. Do this as homework and have each family member choose the ways they best calm down!

10. “Carry Friendship With You!” - Write traits of friendship put inside the suitcase. Post all in your room or around school.

11. “Don’t Forget Your Vowels Suitcase!” - Write out vowels, their rules, examples, etc. Cut them out and put them in the suitcase as students learn them.

12. “Bring History With You” - Use the suitcase for any history facts or dates you want students to remember, or to use to review for a test!

13. Put It In The Trunk and Lock the Lid! - Give students a habits survey and choose one bad habit they want to start with to change! Write the habit they want to change on a class chart (if they want!) and give gold stars every day they met their goal the previous day!
