Time capsules helps students think critically by understanding the nature of events and relationships during a particular moment in time.  Families should identify at least five memorable items from the year 2020 to place in their time capsule. In addition, families need to select an item to store their memories (shoebox, plastic container, glass bottle).  Activity Cards with detailed instructions are listed below under Resources.  Families are asked to share their time capsule (video/photo) on Twitter an tag us using #GTinFBISD and #FBISDGTFamilySeries.
