This is a fun activity I created for 6th graders. The students had a lot of fun. First they choose which ancient civilization they'd like to go back in time to visit. Then when they arrive, they send a postcard to their teacher telling her/him what they see, hear, etc. All information should be correct and appropriate to the time and location the students choose. Finally, they draw a picture for the postcard. If possible, bring in some tourist postcards so the class can get an idea what they are! I was amazed that no one knew what they were. There should be some online that you can project on an overhead camera. There is a teacher here - Ashley Hughes - that has free postcard templates. Good luck!
