Jennifer Wagner of "projects by Jenn" has created another great project called the Holiday Card Exchange Project. I copied the details of the project below. You can visit the site at http://www.jenuinetech.com/Projects/hce09/hce09information.htm
Welcome to the
Holiday Card Exchange Project
Registration will open on
November 6, 2009
Dates of Project:
December 1 - 18th, 2009
This project will be open to all PreK - 6th grade classes around the world.
Classrooms will be teamed with 24 other classrooms to exchange holiday cards.
Each class will be sent an excel document
with all names and addresses of
the classrooms in their group.
Each class needed to create (or purchase) enough cards to send 1 card to each class on your list.
(Teachers are responsible for all postage costs)
Find sample ideas here!
Lists will be sent to participating classrooms
by November 30th, 2009
All cards will need to be mailed to the other classrooms by the 7th of December.
Teachers are encouraged to create a map to show where the cards come from. Google Earth and Google Maps are both very easy programs to use to create maps. You also could make a bulletin board map as well.
Please send Jen a picture of your map
after this project. Thank you!!
Since this was a holiday card project, it will be possible to receive all kinds of holiday cards (of differing beliefs and customs). If a school has certain "restrictions"; the teacher needs to be the filter of these cards.
