Writing Prompt: Create a Time Capsule

A time capsule is a container filled

with items that you can bury in the

ground. Later, archeologists

anthropologists, and historians can dig

it up and get a snapshot of life at a

particular time. We are living in a

historic moment that you may want to

share with a future generation 100 years

from now. For this reason, you will create

your own time capsule. You need to select

one item that represents what kids your

age are doing for fun when they're stuck

at home. You need to select one item that

says something about popular culture. It

could relate to movies, video games, music,

books, or television. But it has to be

something that is popular right now. You

need to select one item that people seem

to cherish more during the quarantine

than any other time before. You need to

select one item that relates

specifically to your family or your

culture. Finally, you need to include

some kind of documentation of daily life.

It could be a to-do list or a daily

schedule from home. It might be a receipt

of something that you bought. It might be

a journal entry sharing how you feel

about this time. Keep in mind that your

items need to last at least 100 years.

They also need to say something about

the present moment. The more specific

and personal the better. Now describe all

five items for future generations.

Include a few sentences about what each

item is and why you chose it. Remember

that they won't have the same background

knowledge you have so you'll need to be

clear, specific, and descriptive in your

explanations.
