Beginning of Year Time Capsule Template

PDF, Word | 3 pages|Grades: 1 - 3

A time capsule template for your students to complete at the beginning of the school year.

Use this teaching resource at the beginning of the school year to create a time capsule for each student.

Use the cover label to stick on a glass jar or recycled plastic bottle and then get your students to complete each of the smaller templates and roll them up to fit in the jar or bottle.

At the end of the year, students can open up their time capsule to see what they looked like and what they wrote on their first day of the school year.

Why is this listed years 1-3. Everything except the hand print would be suitable for upper primary.

Hi Rach, thanks for your comment. The years that have been selected are just a guideline. But, good point – this resource could easily be suitable for upper primary as well! Thanks for your suggestion.
