This is a fun way to get kids to write friendly letters, research other states, and write addresses correctly. My students were each assigned 2 stated. They had to write a friendly letter introducing our class and our idea. They also had to write about our state's and school's facts. Then we sent this survey (Blank) to other classes. One in each state and waited to get them returned. We kept track of each state and learned about their history and interesting facts. The students had to research schools on the internet and find their addresses so they could send their letters. Fun and relevant! Was a great language assignment for the end of the year!
