Holiday Card Exchange

For the second year in a row, our class has participated in a holiday card exchange with classes from around the United States and Canada.

This project is one of the many collaborative projects coordinated by Jen Wagner, an amazing teacher who is willing to share her great ideas.



Our first task was to create some cards for all of the classes on our list. Our theme was SNOW!







When we finished we had lots of cards to send out.



Then it was time to wait for cards to come in. The week before our Holiday Break we had enough for everyone to open a card.



First we used Google Earth to see where the schools from our friends were located.







Then we got to open them!

We put the information in a spreadsheet to compare and contrast the different schools. Click on the link below to see our data.

Look at these beautiful cards!



We had great fun collaborating with other schools with this project. We would love to hear your thoughts or questions about what we did. Please share them with us in the comments section below.
