Description

In this lesson, from ReadWriteThink, students write to friends and family asking them to send picture postcards. This activity provides motivation for writing and reading and provides a wonderful opportunity to learn about maps as students discover where their family members and friends live. In addition, graphs can be constructed to record how many towns, states, and countries the postcards come from. This lesson incorporates the Letter Generator student interactive. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested. Less
