We will need your help to make this a success! We will be collecting postcards throughout the entire school year and recording where they came from on Minnesota, United States, and World maps. The postcards will be made into books for students to read, look at the stamps, and see photographs of different places. The maps and postcard books will be kept on display in our classroom throughout the whole year for students to enjoy. We will use Google Earth and Street View to go on virtual field trips to see different land forms and landmarks around the world. It will be a fun and exciting learning experience for our class!
Here are some ways you can help us collect postcards from all over the world:
· If you travel somewhere and see a postcard, please pick it up and send it to our class! It can be from ANYWHERE, even locally in Minnesota. (I plan to send one from River Falls, WI where I live!)
·Contact family and friends who live in different places and ask them to send us a postcard!
· If you know of a friend or family member going on a trip ask if they would be willing to send a postcard to our class. · Please have the sender write his/her relationship to the student in our class who it is being sent to. No pressure to write anything else on the postcard, but feel free to write a short note telling us about the place the postcard is from.
Please send postcards to: Mrs. Mitchell’s 2nd Grade Class Kennedy Elementary School 1175 Tyler Street Hastings, MN 55033
