We are a classroom of 3rd graders through 5th graders (ages 8-11). We are learning about waterways, and for our classroom specifically, RIVERS!
We will be so excited to receive a postcard with A PICTURE OF, OR INFORMATION ABOUT, OR DIAGRAMS, OR QUOTES, ETC... OF RIVERS! If that's not possible, if you would please tell us about other waterways near you (oceans, seas, lakes, channels, canals, etc.), some history of your country, geography of your country, currency, traditional food and dishes, or famous tourist destinations from your country.
If the above two requests can't be honored, we will gladly accept the GEOGRAPHY OF YOUR COUNTRY so we can look it up, postcards from your country, where you live, your landscape, handmade cards or food, money or measurement, schools and/or school children in your country/town, or anything related to learning about YOUR COUNTRY.
Please remember we are a group of ages 8 to 11 year old's, and receiving pieces of paper in the mail will not aid us in our learning in any way and will be disappointing for the children.
Please, no envelopes, unless you are feeling generous to the children. You will be sending to a school and we prefer our postcards written and stamped. Also, please use real (commemorative) stamps, if possible.
Please note* While we try to send our postcards off as soon as we request our new addresses, sometimes, that just isn't possible. So, sometimes, our postcards won't get sent right away. We apologize if this delay affects anyone. Likewise, since your cards are being mailed directly to the school, they may not be registered on the date of arrival. We will certainly do our best to register as fast as possible, though.
Thank you, and Happy Postcrossing!!
