US Postcard Exchange

The US Postcard Exchange was so much fun and educational!!  Our Social Studies series doesn't include very much on the states so this was a big boost for their learning.

This is the board that we made with the collection of postcards.


Now what to do with the cards????
  • Make a book (but you wouldn't be able to see the backs)
  • Put them in a brag book photo book (but some of the postcards were too large)

So...I decided to put them in a plastic folder.



I put the envelope in the library and the students are enjoying looking at them during Read to Self and Read to Someone!  What high interest reading!!

  2. You can always whole punch them and make a book using binder rings. I did that with all my wedding cards :)
