As I previously blogged about, my giant map from my previous blog, Project Postcard NV, will be returning to my classroom this year.
I'm really excited to use it to teach the 50 states and to use with geography, land forms, US regions, and so forth. I'm excited to use some post cards to make literary connections to our read alouds. One of the first post cards we'll put up is the Saint Louis arch since we're reading The Lightning Thief.
This evening, after the arduous task of finding the map and post cards, I organized by region:
I decided this year, I want to add a little more. I want to focus on colleges from each state to promote options to my students. I want them to start thinking about their futures and making goals. I want them to think outside of the box and that they have options besides UNLV.
If you are willing to send a post card from your college, it would be very much appreciated!
