This activity can be utilized in the last few weeks of school when you need a fun, yet educational project to help keep the students focused. This project also helps to welcome next year's students as well! In this writing activity, the students will design a postcard writing as if they were on a journey in third grade and they would like to tell the new students about their trip "now that they're here!" The students will enjoy retelling the events of the year and creating postcards for the new students, too. A lesson outline is also included. Although this was designed for third grade students, I also have included a version to be used with any grade! Enjoy!
