    My 9 yr old is completely a homeschool project in Geography and is having trouble conceptualizing how big the world really is.

    I wondered if any of you could be bothered to drop us a postcard?

    I would be happy to paypal you the cost of the postcard and the postage.

    We have purchased a world map and will be plotting your locations on the map and doing a little research on each country. [​IMG]

    PM me and I can send you our address here in the States.

    Thanks so much!!!

    Kim and Lindsey!

  6. They do "Flat Stanley" at our school, but it's not the same... you send him off to people you know and have them take pics of Stanley at 'their place'. Then you put all the pics together to make a book about Stanley's Adventures.

    Never thought of doing postcards... that's brilliant... and I've got a slew of online friends I can hit up.

    Hope you don't mind me filching this idea for mine since we'll be HSing over the summer. [​IMG]

    does the postcard have to be an image of where you live? I'm in the UK and would gladly help you out. PM me your address and I will get right onto it, will also tell friends if you like! [​IMG]
