States

Delaware Needed for Postcard Exchange
Crystal

    The following states are still needed to complete our
    Postcard Exchange:
    AL, AK, CO, CT, DE, DC, IA, KS, KY, ME, MD, MN, MT, NV,
    NH, ND, OR, RI, SC, SD, WV, WYIf you are interested, please e-mail me your school
    address. We would love to have you. To find out more about
    the Postcard Exchange, read on.

    I teach 5th grade and find that a postcard exchange ties
    in well as a geography review, as well as writing--the
    format of a postcard.

    If you choose to join, your job will be to send each
    participant a postcard.
    Usually I have my class create one postcard and then
    photocopy and glue it on individual postcards. In the
    letter we include information about our state and our
    school.

    Then when we receive the various cards from other states
    we display them on a bulletin board. I put a U.S. map on
    the wall and everytime I receive a card we put a pin in
    that city/state and attach the postcard.

    My students love receiving the postcards. They have an
    opportunity to learn little things about states and
    schools.

    At the end of the summer I will be e-mailing all of the
    participants a list of addresses that will be involved in
    the exchange. Usually we have about 30 states, I would
    love to get all 50 states, but I haven't had that happen
    yet.
    Let me know if you have any other questions or if you are
    interested so I can add your state to our list.
