Postcard World Geography (4th-8th)
Teacher: Nancy Reeves
Description: The class will learn about world geography and culture by exchanging postcards with people around the world. We will access the website postcrossing.com to track our postcards and get addresses. With parental permission, each student will set up their own postcrossing account and will get postcards in the mail addressed to them at home. If parents don’t want their child to have an account, they will participate using postcards received by the teacher.
