Angélique, an enthusiastic young elementary school teacher in the Belgian commune of Êthe, started a study project on the U.S.A. with her 5th and 6th grade elementary school students. Her students would like to collect state postcards from each of the 50 states, mailed with a special or commemorative postage stamp if possible and postmarked from a US post office. The kids are learning English and History from the postcard as well as the researching about the stamp. They are anxiously waiting for the mailman and so far they have around 25 states! The 6th graders will soon move on to secondary school, but the 5th graders will continue this project throughout the next school year!
As of May 22, the missing states (designated in white on the map above) are as follows:
AlaskaIf you are in one of these states and are willing to help, please consider sending them a postcard to the address below! If you include your return address or e-mail, the students will send you a thank you note.
It would be great if you could participate!
École Êthe-Belmont (5&6)
8a, Belle Vue
This village is situated in the south of Belgium, in the Ardennes (Battle of the Bulge) near a pasture where, on November 10, 1944, US Air Force Captain James Dimel and his crew, bravely and safely crash landed their doomed flying fortress B17, “Wolfel-Bear”. Their heroism saved many American and Belgian lives.
Thank for your attention, and feel free to forward this to friends or relatives in other states hoping to reach all 50 states!
