The Great Mail Race is an excellent way for students to learn letter writing, geography, research skills, data collection, and graphing skills, and much more! Students send letters and questionnaires to schools in all 50 states. You can use the responses any way you want - mark the schools on a map, graph data from their surveys, etc.
This packet has everything you need but the stamps and envelopes! Includes an introductory letter with instructions (both PDF and Word files so you can edit them), a class questionnaire, a state info sheet, and a graphic organizer for choosing schools.
