This year our class participated in a Holiday Card Exchange. This is one of the many online collaborative projects for schools created and hosted by Jen Wagner.
First we each made a Holiday card. The theme this year was lights.
Inside each card we put a paper with information about our classroom.
Then we addressed envelopes to classrooms all over the United States and Canada and mailed them out!
Then we waited...
At first just a few cards came in the mail.
And finally more cards than students in our class!
When there were enough cards so each of had one to open, we went ahead and opened them.
Then we looked to see where all the cards came from. Check out the map below to see.
We looked at the information papers in their cards. It was fun learning about the different schools! Then we each entered the information from our card into a Google form. This way we can use this data later! Here is the information we collected.
The cards look wonderful. Every class was so creative!
Sending cards to friends during the holiday season is a tradition.
