This is a great start of the year activity to complete with your students. Within this product there are 4 activities that can be placed in your class time capsule:
1. All About Me - This is completed at the start and at the end of the year with the option of the student drawing a selfie now and then.
2. My Wish - If they had one wish this year, what would it be?
3. Height** - Use a piece of string to measure the students height. Staple this at the bottom of the start of year height. Compare at the end of year.
4. Frame - Take a photo of the student (I use their 'First Day' photo) and glue it in the middle of their coloured in frame.
Complete these four activities with your students and then explain that you will be placing them in a time capsule. Pop them away in an envelope for safe keeping, then at the end of the year open them back up and look at the wonderful changes that have occurred. The students love to see the differences in their handwriting, responses, height and wish!
Tip: I did one activity per day and then placed each students activity in their own envelope. When reopening at the end of year, I pretended I had just gotten it out of the ground by having dirt and mud on their envelopes!
** There are 3 different options depending on your starting time. Jan - Nov, Jan - Dec, Feb - Dec. Please email if you would like a different month on height activity.
