A Possible Classroom Resource?
I’m a big fan of the Photojojo blog, and in their most recent post, they had this awesome article on postcards. I would highly recommend reading it.
While the postcard project they outline is directed at adults, why couldn’t you do this with students? You could hook up with classrooms of the same grade around the world, and have students send out homemade postcards. I smell a combination of art and social studies!!!
I suppose that you could do something similar through blogging with your class too, but you have to admit, there’s nothing like getting mail when you’re a kid.
