For the past several years I've created a time capsule with my kindergarten students. I write the parents a letter and I ask for a shoe box that will serve as a time capsule. Parents write a letter to their child and they fill out a survey with their child. I add pictures that we've used in our classroom, a writing sample and an art project or two. All of these things go into the capsule along with the "All I Really Need To Know About How To Live and What To Do And How To Be, I Learned in Kindergarten" poem. I also let students write letters to each other and they put those in the capsule. A day or two before school lets out we wrap up our time capsules and put on a label that says "Don't Open until my 18th Birthday". It's a super fun project and it really doesn't require much work from the teacher (time capsules are sent home with the student). Here are the materials you need. I hope you can use them!
