A fun [FREEBIE!] project for your students... they are given or choose a state to research, then create a postcard as if they were on vacation in that state and sent a postcard home to a friend or loved one to tell all about their visit there.
For the postcards to give my students, I bought 5 packs of mini posterboard at Target for about $2 a pack. I drew the lines with a ruler and Sharpie.
They had a great time with this project. They learned a lot about the state they researched and made adorable "postcards" that we hung in the hall to display!
I hope your class enjoys this project as much as we did!
