This is a simple project for middle school students to create a time capsule to be opened on their 18th birthday or some other significant time. The directions include time capsule ideas and a rubric for the items to be included. There is also a small research component to find the current prices of commonly purchased items.
A smaller shoe box, cereal, or tissue box is the perfect size for stored objects.
Students may use white butcher paper to wrap and decorate the the outside of their boxes
Great start of the school year sharing activity and introduction to the importance of historical artifacts.
Includes simple, 100 point grading rubric.
