What is the Global Postcard Exchange? It's an opportunity for classes around the nation and world to connect with each other through postcards! Each participating class is matched with classes in other states and countries. They then design and send a postcard to each class they are matched with. The postcards must also include the answers to several questions about their school/community/state, allowing the participating classes to compare their schools and communities with others.
Last year Hollis 3rd and 4th graders participated in the postcard exchange and we received postcards from nearly 30 other classes! This year GEJ 5th graders are having the opportunity to make connections to classes all over the globe. Our postcards will be sent to states around the nation as well as several other countries, including Australia and Germany!
Students are now working on their postcard designs. Some are choosing to draw their own design, while others are using Buncee to digitally create their postcard. All of them are looking wonderful! I'm looking forward to sending our postcards to our new friends as well as receiving ones from our buddy classes!
