We are living in historic times. With this in mind, Grade 7 students are documenting these days of quarantine to help inform their future selves. Using a written and visual format, students are recording several aspects of their current lives.
Some of the items students are putting in their time capsules are:
-Favorite things in their 2020 lives- pets, books, movies, friends
-Artistic creations, photos from this time, newspaper clippings, special memories
-Descriptions of how they are feeling and what they are learning from this experience
-Descriptions of their local community and how it has been impacted by COVID-19
-Descriptions of how they are continuing to have fun
-Descriptions of how special occasions are being celebrated- birthdays, Passover, Easter, etc.
–A Letter To Self, imparting wisdom to remember (likely) emphasizing gratitude, patience, and other intrinsic lessons from this time period
