Post Cards from the 50 States contains picture "post cards" created for all 50 states. Also included in this 79 page unit are pages containing the slogans for each state.
This is a fun opportunity for the children to get to choose a postcard of a state they would like to visit. The letter can be written as if the child has been to that state. A child can write to another child in his/her class or the teacher can make arrangements for her class to write to a "pen pal" in another classroom. The "post cards" may also be used when doing a report on a particular state.
Using post cards is a great way to teach the children letter writing skills. Messages can be short, but still follow the format for writing a letter.
Following the picture post cards for the fifty states you will find 50 cards with the state slogans. The 50 post cards and slogan cards can also be used to make an excellent instructional bulletin board.
