My students are only in 3rd grade, but looking ahead, I wanted to give them something when they graduated high school. That is when the time capsule project was born! This keepsake is surely something your students (and their parents!) will treasure for years to come!
All you need to do is collect student work found in this document, save the time capsules and then give them back at their high school graduation! I also included pieces of artwork, writing projects, a class photo, and their first day and last day photos in the time capsule.
Parents will also be given "homework" to complete a Wishes for Your Future piece. I heard back from many parents that they were so touched by this project and look forward to their child getting it back when they graduate high school!
