Holiday Greeting Cards part 1

We are starting another delightful project by Jen! We love all of her projects! This one is a big one too…we have to make and send holiday greeting cards to classes all around the country! We have 28 different schools and we have to send some holiday cheer to a charity of our choice (we will be choosing ours this afternoon!).

So, to kick start our project I wanted something that would help you to understand where these schools are and who we are sending cards too! I found this fantastic idea from Mrs. Hamrac and thought this was the perfect way for you to get to know the schools!

Your assignment will be to get onto Google maps and type in the address that is on your sheet of paper. Then you have to explore where the school is! Write down anything fun that you find by the school. Come back to the blog after you’re done exploring and answer these questions about the school you researched. Good luck!

Is your school in a big city?

What does the surrounding area look like?

Is there anything cool that you found close to the school?

What state is your school from?


Ipad users: click on the app called maps

If you’re visiting this blog please tell us about your school or house and what state you are from!
