Time Capsules

One highlight each year is burying our time capsules. Our capsules represent ourselves at the beginning of our year in 2nd grade. We eagerly await the last day of school so we can "dig" it up and see how much we have grown as learners. (Shhhh I hide our capsule in our custodian's workroom) In our time capsule we include some basic information about ourselves- a self portrait, hand tracing, favorites at the time and letter about our first week. 
We also include a picture and string that represents our height. Hope your students enjoy this activity as much as we do! 


  1. I love this time capsule idea for back to school! I will have to tell some teachers I work with about this! Especially the string! Super cute!
