Your students will love creating this unique and creative time capsule project!

Creating a Time Capsule is an awesome critical thinking and fun writing activity to do with students! It works especially well at the end of the year to create a special keepsake! Teachers love it because it's meaningful and students love it because it's a creative project that's all about them!

After learning about two famous Time Capsules, students create their very own personal Time Capsule to lock up and discover in the future. There are six parts of the Time Capsule that they will complete during class. Part six is collecting photos or small objects to place into their Time Capsule.

Part One: Introducing Me!
Part Two: In My World
Part Three: The People in My Life
Part Four: My Favorite Things
Part Five: A Look Into The Future
Part Six: A Secret Stash
Part Seven: A Letter to Kids in the Future!

Students love creating and writing the different parts as they "Build" their own Time Capsule to their future self! For younger students (or if you're limited on time) you might only want to do only one of the pages for each part to complete it quicker.

Also, enclosed is a letter to send home to parents with their Time Capsules explaining about it and asking them to put it in a safe place for several years or until they graduate from high school.

What a great thinking and fun writing activity to do at the beginning of the school year and continue all year long OR to keep students thinking and motivated during the last weeks of school!
