I am having my students do a time capsule project (based on a similar project I did in senior English that I kept myself). So far they've included a 5 paragraph essay on 3 people or events that have influenced them, a career research paper, and a list of their current "favorites" - things like fav song, fav movie, fav subject, etc. It is something I have told them shouldn't be opened until after they've graduated high school. Does anyone have other suggestions for things that might be good to include? Btw, these are 8th graders. Thanks.
