Memory boxes contain objects that help us to reflect on the past and recall people and events. They can be based on a particular era or theme ex. Wartime or sport.




Memory are filled with objects that hold a personal memory, letters or toys from childhood. Putting these itmes in a memory box is a way of presenting objects and the memories associated with them so that others are able to learn and discover.


Memory boxes can also help to generate conversations between age groups. Younf children can play a game by guessing what an object is or what it might be used for. Older people might find their own memories are stimulated by an object in the box or discussions about an object – perhaps they own a similar item.


The simple act of creating a memory box can be fun and enjoyable and may one day be a wonderful memory in its own right.




Memory boxes are as unique as their creators. Here are some tips on what to include:

            * put in objects that can be easily handled.

            * avoid using items that are valuable, heavy or sharp.

* Include objects that have stories associated with them – you might want to   attach a photo or a short letter to a particular object.

* Try to make sure there is a theme connecting the items in the box – this

will help someone to understand the context of the items and recognize

why they are important and valuable.


You can make photocopies to place in your memory box.




The most exciting part about putting together a memory box is sharing it with others. Remember a memory box is not like a time capsule. It can be used to so that everyone can learn through your own personal experiences.
















Purpose of the project: In Social Studies we have been learning about past and present societies. We have explored ancient societies and how these societies have contributed to our present day of life.


Through artifacts we are able to predict how tools, weapons, etc have been created and used.


To understand what an artifact is our class will be doing a project on memory boxes. They are asked to fill their memory boxes with significant objects, photos, letters, objects that represents them. The objects that they pick should tell a story of themselves ( who they are, where they come from, what is important to them, what they enjoy, etc.)
