Default Help with a travel project...

Hi Kids,
Since my grandson Aiden will be starting kindergarten, in the fall, I've decided to do a geography project with him, and, maybe with a bit of help from some of you guys, it could be extra special.

I have always loved geography, so here is my plan..If by chance you happen to have a postcard from your travels, or, from your state, laying around, if you wouldn't mind, mailing it off to him, once it's received, we will try and find it on a map I will have ready for him to search and find.
He loves to get mail, and, I think this could be fun for both of us, to see how we fill up the map, and maybe he can bring it to school, for show and tell. Thanks in advance, his Memere apreciates it..xoxoox

I will email, or pm, the address.

That is a great idea. When I was in the Vatican, I mailed myself a postcard and it was fun recieving it once I got back. I will shoot you a PM and send him something from California. 8)

As a pre-school educator, I'm all for it!
I'll be sending you a postcard from Montreal A.S.A.P.!

I filled out my postcards. I couldn't decide which one I liked so I will send 3 different ones. I put some general information on the cards like the year california became a state. I hope he can read my bad handwritting. I will mail out the cards today.
