Welcome to the
Holiday Card Exchange Project
Dates of Project:
November 28 to December 21, 2012
This project will
be open to all PreK - 6th grade classes around the world.
Classrooms will be
teamed with 29 other classrooms to exchange holiday cards.
PLUS, each classroom will send 1 card
to a children's hospital (more info soon)
Each class will be
sent an excel document
with all names and addresses of
the classrooms in their group.
Each class needs
to create (or purchase) enough cards to send
ONE card to MAIL to each class on your list.
(Teachers are responsible for all postage
Find sample ideas here!
Group lists will be sent
to participating classrooms
by November 23rd, 2012
Our suggested theme this year is SNOWGLOBE.
Please visit our pinterest page -- as well as the resources page for ideas and samples -- and your class may choose to create other kinds of cards.
All cards must insert the template (provided here) on their card or provide the information from the template somewhere in their card.. This template will enable you to easily share information about your school to the 29 other classrooms you are sharing cards with.
All cards will need
to be mailed to the other classrooms by the 10th of December.
You are encouraged to use Google Earth to share landmarks. You will find directions on the resource page.
Teachers are also invited
to create a map of landmarks (from KMZ's sent from other participants) by using Google Earth.
You also could make a bulletin board map.
NEW FOR 2012
All classrooms will send ONE card to
a suggested children's hospital -
This card will be addressed to
TO: Any Child
Just A Reminder......
since this is a holiday card project,
it will be possible to receive all kinds of holiday cards
(of differing beliefs and customs).
If a school has certain "restrictions" --
the teacher will need to be the filter of these cards.
Sorry but registration is now closed.
