Postcard Exchange

We are enrolled in a Postcard Exchange with classrooms all across the United States. We send each of these classrooms a postcard from our state of Connecticut. We teach them some interesting facts about our home state. In return, we receive a postcard from their classroom and learn about the state they live in. So far we have received postcards from New York, Hawaii, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Mississippi, and North Carolina.
