Welcome to The Postcard Exchange!


You are invited to participate in an opportunity to teach your students about collaboration and make connections with other states. Your class will send one postcard to each of the 49 states, excluding your own. In return, you will receive postcards from 49 classrooms around the country.

How to Get Started:
1. Sign up using one of the links below.
2. Please add the project to your lesson plan book, calendar, or yearly plans. Include your group number! It is difficult to find later. This is a great way to remember you signed up! :)
3. When your group is full (this may vary based on time), you'll receive an e-mail with a spreadsheet of addresses from your group.
4. Purchase or make 49 postcards from your state and the stamps to mail them. (Many teachers ask for donations or make them using card stock.)
5. Write and address the postcards. You may choose to type or write your postcards. Given the size of a postcard, it is easier to include quality information when typed.
6. Include your city, state, and 3 fascinating facts.
7. Send your postcards by the group's deadline.

Please keep the commitment to your group and be mindful of deadlines. One of the main goals of this project is collaboration, and your support avoids disappointed students. We had a great response of over 1,000 teachers last year.

If you have questions, contact me at: marissa.engelhard@gmail.com - Please include your group number in the subject.

If your group has the following number of states or less to fill, your group will start on the following date:
20 states or less to fill - January 31
30 states or less to fill - February 28
40 states or less to fill - March 31
50 states or less to fill - April 30
