I found this great idea on my Facebook page from a teacher freebie info. supporter. The first day of school this year my students will be making time capsules. The "container" is a paper towel tube. In my LA/SS classes the first day they will have their picture taken, draw themselves (as they see themself), and complete the writing "I am Special because..." My math/science teacher will be having them measure their height using yarn and will be tracing their hand. On their hand tracing they will write goals for their academics and behaviors, their favorite color, their favorite and least favorite subjects, their favorite movie ever, and their current favorite television show. I teach seventh graders and their likes and dislikes change often and they grow in height and maturity during the year. During the last week of school we'll open their time capsules.
