This Postcard Project is a great way to get students to make global connections. Through receiving postcards from different people all over the U.S. or around the world, students will learn about different cultures, different lifestyles, etc. This project will allow students a closer look and a better perspective of people and places around the world. Hopefully, it will intrigue the students and they will be motivated to learn even more!
This packet includes lessons on how to fill out a postcard and what a postcard picture can represent, a brainstorming page to determine who might be able to send postcards, two postcard request letters that can be mailed to friends and family (one for postcards specifically within the U.S. and one for postcards worldwide), and a map of the U.S. and the world.
