Each classroom was teamed up with 29 other classrooms around the world to exchange cards. Students created original cards within their classrooms and mailed them out at the beginning of December. When the classrooms began to receive cards, students were very excited to learn about similarities and differences between themselves and their partner classes. This year's card theme was snow globes.
All of the cards received were collected for a display which included a map with stickers showing the senders' locations. Cards have been received from over twenty-nine states and Canada! Students utilized Google Earth to explore locations and one class was able to Skype with a partner class in Prince Rupert, BC Canada. It was a memorable project for all involved!
