Postcard Swap is going well!

It is going a little slower than planned, but it is going well! I'm using the Olde World Style US Maps {from HS in the Woods} to use in our States Notebook. We read/view the postcard, 'study' the state (using the maps & fact sheets), place the worksheets in our States Notebook {a notebook where we collect the info. about each state}, and then hang the postcard on the wall. Here is a pic of the States Notebook:

This is a FUN, easy way to learn about each state. The kids enJOY getting a new postcard in the mail each week. I purchased The Little Man In the Map (we love this book) and it is helping us learn the states by shape alone!
