Lesson Plans for Teachers


Dear Teachers,


Following are lesson plans and activities for grades 2-5 that can be used as a one day activity or as a Post Office thematic unit. Our lesson plans cover language arts/literacy skills, geography, reading comprehension, art, and social studies. In addition, it may be a great service project for the whole school or individual students. A student reaching out through postcards to kids with a life threatening illness is an easy way to touch the lives of children who are fighting to survive!  New lesson plans will be posted throughout the school year so check the site frequently.



Lesson Plan 1: Create Your Own Postcard

Children creating their own postcard and learning how to write and send it.




Lesson Plan 2: Greetings from...

Let the kids discover new cities and places.




Lesson Plan 3: Journey of a postcard

Discover the various places on a postcard's journey.




Lesson Plan 4: History of a postage stamp

Learn all about postage stamps.
