It’s the end of the school year and most teachers are in the home stretch. Summer’s right around the corner and we can already smell it in the air. But school isn’t over yet. There are still plans to write and lessons to teach.
Fear not. I have a few fun activities to help you through the last few weeks of school (some are free!). Hang in there.
We tend to reflect on our school year accomplishments as the last day approaches. I created a Time Capsule Project as a fun way to create a memoir for students.
You can make a time capsule with a 2 liter soda bottle like I did, or use a shoebox, a Pringles can, or even a paper towel roll. Have your students write about themselves and the types of things they’re into at the moment. Add in some drawings and other writing samples and seal it up. There you go, a Time Capsule Project that will be treasured for years to come.
You can make your own, but if you want to save some time, grab this Time Capsule Activity in my TPT shop. Just print and go! Your students will have a lot of fun with this one. And trust me, they’ll crack you up with their ideas of what life will be like 30 years from now.
Apparently at age 38, one can expect to have a long grey beard. Oh, and what are they doing? Digging….a grave. Ahem. I suddenly feel old.
My Time Capsule Project includes a differentiated letter (3 levels) that students can write to their future selves. It also includes pages that they can describe themselves and set goals for the future.
It’s a really fun project and is perfect for the end of the school year. I highly recommend creating Time Capsules with your students! It’ll be one of the school projects they keep forever.
