Primary and Secondary Source Time Capsule Activity
Creating time capsules are a historic tradition, especially during stressful times.
But, this is not your ordinary time capsule. This assignment doesn't ask your students to generically list their favorite things, or describe their hobbies.
This activity was designed to create a small snapshot in time regarding the COVID-19 virus and through research, students are to compare this pandemic to the Spanish flu pandemic that occurred 100 years ago.
Students are asked to identify their primary and secondary sources they used (there is a student sheet in the assignment that reminds/teaches them what these sources are).
There is a little bit of science - students communicate what COVID-19 actually is, some history - they will compare this pandemic to the Spanish flu, and even some language as they are asked to write a letter to someone 100 years from now that might be experiencing a similar pandemic.
In this package, you will get a .pdf file that you can automatically post online or share with students. I have also included the .doc file so you can make a copy for each student and they can type their answers in and submit them online. It is also perfect to print out when we all return to the classroom as well.
This task was designed to be shorter in length to accommodate the distance learning most of us have as a reality these days. You can have your students print it out to complete, or, I've also included the word doc that you can modify and post in a Google classroom or similar.
