Postcard Exchange 2011-2012

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I really want my students to participate in a postcard exchange as we learn about the different states and regions of the United States. I would like to have one class from each state to participate in our exchange. I will create a spread sheet of each school and address with ready to print address labels and email them to you as soon as we have a class for each state. I will periodically update this thread with the states we currently have. It is my goal to have all 50 states compiled by October 15, 2011 so I can send out the address labels. I kindly ask that you purchase 50 postcards that show important information of your state, have your students write important facts (that I will list later) about your state on the card, and send the card by November 30, 2011. If you are interested please email me with the following information:

Your Name
Grade
State
School Name
Address of school

astgeorge(at)boston.k12.ma.us

I am excited to get this started!!

Your Commitment

Each teacher should plan to purchase or create up to 50 postcards that represent your state and the postage it costs to mail them. If you are able to do a hallway display that will benefit more than just your own classroom, you may be able to ask your administration for funding for the cards and/or postage. You never know until you ask!

Postcard Information:
Share major facts about your state such as -
* your state symbols (flower, bird, insect, tree, etc.)
* your state's nickname (ex. Florida is known as the Sunshine State)
* important people who have lived in your state (Presidents, inventors, authors, etc.)
* a major historical event that happened in your state
* your state's major industry or resource

Send the postcards by November 30th so all classes can enjoy receiving mail and learning about all the 50 states!

I signed up for one earlier but still haven't heard anything about it. Good Luck. This sounds like an awesome idea.

If you want to be a second classroom from Penn, I don't see why we can't have two. On other blogs I have seen that teachers sometimes only get a fraction of the postcards that they were anticipating. If you are okay with having two from one state, I don't see why we can't.

your second person from PA. My email is landry(at)ht-sd(dot)org

Thank you so much. You are right that even though people say they will participate they don't. The last time I did this I sent my 49 and only received 27.

Thank you

Donna, I have tried to email you twice and it seems that your email server thinks mine is spam! Can you try emailing me astgeorge#boston.k12.ma.us with the name of your school and the address there?

Thanks!
