Create a Time Capsule

time capsule

Time capsules are a way to communicate with future generations and to express what it feels like to be alive at a particular time, in a particular place. Imagine you are creating a poem time capsule to be read in a hundred years. What do you want to put in it? Choose a word, an article of clothing, and an object that capture the feeling of this year (for example, for 2021, you might use unprecedented, a Toronto Blue Jays face mask, and a can of black beans). Include a smell that reminds you of this year (for example, the yeasty, cozy smell of baking bread or the stinging smell of hand sanitizer). Begin with a piece of advice and end with a question.
