Time Capsules

Each year, my students make a time capsule on the first day of school.  They complete a list of all their favorites and then place the papers in decorated tubes.  We put the tubes on a shelf and open them the last week of school.  It’s fun to see the changes in each of us in only a year.  We also discussed how time capsules are used in other ways.  It might be fun to make a time capsule at home when your child is eight.  Open it ten years later when they turn 18 and graduate from High School.  (Be sure to include letters from grandparents and a piece of artwork.)
