A Gift to the Next Generation
           "It's over here," Kelly yelled while digging the dry ground below her.  It was a warm spring day, and Kelly was happy to have come home from school to throw on a pair of summer shorts.  Her mom had laughed at her.
      Time Capsules are a way that people in the future can find out about the past.  Usually, a person will bury what is important to them, as well as relevant items to the culture around them, in some kind of container.  The container remains buried until a specified date, at which people from the future recover it.  This is similar to archeologists that uncover ancient artifacts to learn more about the past.  By creating time capsules, we are preserving history for archeologists to discover in the future.  An example of this is a time capsule that was sealed at the site of the 1939 New York's World Fair.  The time capsule is not to be opened for another five thousand years, in 6939!
