Each year (for the past 17 or so years…) I have encouraged students to collect at least one post card, brochure and/or one map from their spring break. This can be maps from parks, state maps from rest stop welcome centers, etc. I also encourage the students to bring in a postcard from someplace they visited over their break. Postcards may not be as popular as they once were, but many places still have them. Of course…photos count…so take a photo and help your child print it to turn into a makeshift postcard.
This project will count as a writing assignment. Once we all return some will complete the writing segment, so please try to help. One of the best parts of this project is that it can include everyone...even if you don’t travel far at all this break. A map could be a printed map from Google Maps of a walking trail that you and your child explored, or a map of a museum. Postcards might come from a favorite restaurant or local attraction (Purdue, parks, neighborhood, etc.)
Spring Break Postcard Project
This project is truly meant to be fun and a way for your child to get more involved in spring break and any family travel, activities, adventures, etc
