Worksheet Print out and hand to your students. They'll love it! I give it to my 7th graders. The sheet goes through all topics for them to write about. Students are given one to two periods of class time and a weekend to complete it or make it as long as they'd like. They seal it up and put their graduation year on the front with their name.
Their senior year, they get the time capsule letter back and they LOVE reading it!
I've done this assignment for over 10 years and this sheet is all you need to hand the kids for them to get started.
