If you haven't discovered it yet, the US Postal Service has a great website, Community Connections, dedicated to educators. The site offers lesson plans, education kits, a teacher's guide, and information on the School Days & American Ways curriculum-connected calendar, which guides teachers in the best way to teach with stamps. All of the information is free, except for the School Days calendar kit.
I was really excited to learn about this resource, as my daughter has been asking me about starting a stamp collection. But I was disappointed that there were no lesson plans for Hispanic Heritage, especially given some of the awesome stamps that are available that reflect our culture and its diversity.
Still, I thought that some of their biodiversity lesson plans look interesting!
Con mucho cariño...
