How fun is doing time capsules with your class at the beginning of the year? This particular one offers a way to do a comparison. You begin on the first day of school and ask your kids to complete it with total honest. Make a big deal out of it. I would also tie ribbons around each one and decorate a box with a sign "Do Not Open Until___". Make it ceremonious!
Then the last week of school pass them out again and have the kids answer the same questions. They will get a kick out of how their tastes have changed.
For any student who comes in during the year, be sure to have them included in the fun!
Thanks for stopping by!
