Product Description
Overview
Mailing May is the true story of a little girl who was mailed through the US post office in 1913. I used this book in my classroom as a Social Studies History lesson to use with the common core standard. I have tailored the lesson so that ELA content is also covered. I did this lesson with a 1st grade class, but this would be appropriate to use for other grades as it can be accelerated for higher grade level usage. The unit includes the following:
• Illustrated Vocabulary Cards- to use in a variety of ways.
• 12 slide PowerPoint presentation on Stamps, looking at what types of illustrations stamps include where they can be from and what purpose stamps serve.
• Work sheet to design a stamp of the child’s choosing, along with an area to write about the choices made.
• Sequencing activity and worksheet- Cut and paste the sequence of events from the story and then illustrate the events.
• Letter writing activity- Write a letter for the Flat Child Project and practice the correct form of letter writing.
• Flat Child Activity- In the style of Flat Stanley; this activity can be used in conjunction with the Letter writing as the child decorates a flat version of themselves. May was mailed through the post office, and the child can create a version of themselves to be sent through the mail to a relative or friend. Once the process is finished the whole class can use a map to see how far the flat children have travelled and this can also be integrated into Math and used for graphing.
• Communication home (2) - A letter home to explain the flat child to parents and garner support for the project. A letter to the recipient of the flat child.
• Rubrics (2) - To assess the stamp and sequencing activities.
