50 State Postcard Exchange

Our exchange is in need of the following states. Postcards can be mailed out any time between October and April. (Include information about your state and local area.) I will send an email with address labels in September so that you just have to peel and stick. Postcards can be donated by parents, made by students or made through a company like Vistaprint.


My theme this year is 50 Nifty United States!
I might have my kids make license plates for each State as the postcards come in. Found this online and thought it was cute. http://www.educationworld.com/tools_templates/plate.doc

The exchange works by sending a postcard with information about your state to each of the classes participating. Our goal is always 50 states but we haven't made it to that point yet. On the back of your postcard include the usual important facts about your state but also include information about your local area. You are responsible for the postcards and postage. My hope is that everyone mails out their postcards between October and March.

I Private messaged you earlier today. If you have any other questions just let me know.
