Product Description
This newsletter explains how to make a first day cover - envelope with commemorative stamp, appropriate postmark and artwork.
It is based on the stamps being issued to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. The first stamp issued in this series was the attack on Ft. Sumter in 2011. The last stamp will be issued this spring, 2015 probably highlighting the surrender at Appomattox. This activity will give students the chance to use their social studies skills then create their own primary source. Ask your school's PTA to buy the envelopes and stamps.
