Imagine you are an archaeologist living in the year 3015. Pick any object in your house, and examine it as though you have never seen it before. You don’t know the name of the object, how it is made, or what it is used for. Remember, you have never seen this object before; it is a piece of history and your job is to investigate.
Write a two paragraph report of your findings. Your first paragraph should include all your observations about the mysterious object from the past. Remembering to keep in mind the five senses as you write, describe what the object looks, feels, sounds, smells and tastes like. Your second paragraph should include your predictions about what this object was used for. Was it food? A tool? Some sort of clothing or game? Be creative in your guesses!
