Classroom Project (Receive a Postcard!)

Hi all!

My name is Avery, and I’m a middle school teacher (ages 12-14) in rural Alaska! I’m hoping to do a unit with my seventh grade social studies students starting in January where they learn about other places around the world. Since my personal passion is postcards, I was hoping to use Postcrossing to enhance their learning!

So here’s my request:

I’m looking for 24 people from 24 different countries to receive a card from one of my students. You need not do anything except comment on this thread with your town and country. If you are the first person to comment from your country, I will PM you for your address (if I don’t get enough unique countries then I will begin PMing repeats, so still comment if you’d like to participate even if someone else from your country has already commented!).

You do not need to send us anything in return — I just ask you PM me when you receive my student’s card.

Additionally, students will be designing their own cards, so make sure you’re okay with receiving a handmade card by a 12/13 year old :slight_smile:

And just a reminder that we won’t be sending the postcards until sometime in January.

Thank you in advance for participating and expanding my students’ knowledge of the world!
