United States History project where students create a time capsule as though they lived in the U.S. during Colonial America, the Civil War, WWII or the Cold War. It makes a great end of year and/or post-standardized testing project, or you could have students complete each portion throughout the curriculum. Students practice map work, creative writing, timeline work, propaganda creation, and art. The project set includes printable guidelines and a rubric as well as suggestions for what could be included in the map assignment portion and current links to all resources needed to complete the projects. The project is designed to be completed in class with limited materials, and works well if students will be in and out for testing.
