This is my first installment for our 50 State Postcard Exchange, started by Cheryl Saoud! I am absolutely loving being part of this - it has opened up so many questions and ideas for my firsties!
Here is the bulletin board where we are displaying our post cards. It's nothing fancy right now, but we'll be adding to it as we get more cards and do more research! Please excuse my license with state borders, it was a bit difficult to trace the map!
As we receive the post cards we are looking up the state and compiling a list of questions for the class. Here are the states we have received so far and the corresponding questions. I don't have Skype at school, so I'm hoping that if I post here that the other teachers in the exchange will answer in the comments so I can show my class :)
Have you ever drunk milk straight from a cow? What kind of activities do you do for Lincoln's birthday? Since you attend a private school, do you wear uniforms? What kinds of things do you do after school in a small town?
What is that amusement park on your post card? Have you been there on a field trip? You mentioned beaches - do you go to the beach on field trips? Since you are a kindergarten class, do you have nap time or center time? Do you go to school the whole day?
Do you eat a lot of sunflower seeds in Kansas since it is your state flower?
We can't wait to get answers to our questions and receive more cards! We are even more excited to see what you want to learn about Oklahoma!
