Postcard Exchange


As many of you know one of the subjects I love to teach is Geography/History. We have been working our way through Geography from a Postcard Exchange I started last December. I have had several people ask me how to participate in my Postcard Exchange, so I decided since many of us are beginning to think about getting back to the grind with school it might be a good time to start another exchange.

How this works:

  • Leave me a comment letting me know you would like to exchange postcards with us. No private information please, but do make sure and leave an email address so I can contact you.
  • Grab my button and write a post inviting other’s to exchange postcards with you. Please link this post back to my blog as the host of this exchange. Also let your readers know that I am interested in exchanging with them as well. (This is not mandatory, unless you want to exchange with other families, however I would still appreciate you letting your followers know about this exchange, as there are still several States and Countries, that Selena and I don’t have.)

You get to choose who you want to exchange with, by doing it this way and I don’t have the headache of trying to make sure I keep everyone’s private information.

We still need several States that we are lacking in our geography hop and will exchange from around the world.

Have fun and open the door for your kids to the World that lays before them.

You do not have to participate in the Postcard Exchange to link up you Geography/History posts!

  1. What state are you in? I would love to exchange a post card with you, if I don't have the state you are in.

  2. Have you tried Postcrossing? You have no way of predicting where the cards are from, but I've done a couple of cards from there, and it's fun to do. Though it's mostly international.

  3. Hi Debbie
    As we are still getting postcards from our postcard swap (doing all the states 2 per week) I don't think we will participate this time. I did sort of time the one we are participating in wrong. We started just as it was time for the baby to be born and I have yet to actually do lessons with the postcards. I am storing them in a folder. Have decided to start them (one per week) as a part of our school year curriculum, then we will attach them to our wall next to our map and do our worksheets. And if it is okay, we will be linking up to your "Postcard Exchange Geography/History" Carnival.
    Though I am not sure how to get postcards from the states that we are lacking from the swap.

  4. I feel terrible for not even sending out all of my cards last time, so I am not sure I am ready to try again. On the other hand, it's very tempting. I think I'll join in mid September when I have some time on my hands.

  5. I think this is a really neat idea to study US geography.

    I would love to join. err do I really have to leave my email in a comment?
