Back to School activity; Make a time capsule to seal and open at the end of the school year. A first week back essential!

This is an ideal project for getting to know your new class.
Make an ‘All About Me’ time capsule envelope to seal up and save and then watch the delight on pupils’ faces as they open them up again at the end of the school year!

In this All About Me activity, pupils fill in two fun activity sheets about themselves. They seal their All About Me sheets in an envelope and decorate a time capsule label for the front. Be as creative as you like with the envelope decoration - glitter, stickers, pens or paints!

Then the teacher saves the All About Me time capsule envelopes and returns them at the end of the year to be opened. Children just love opening these and seeing how they have changed over the course of the year!

This is such a good idea. I've been thinking of doing a time capsule project for a while, but hadn't had time to plan it out - then I saw this so I didn't have to!
