Fifth graders in Ms. Cynthia Ransom’s class are participating in a writing activity called, “The Great Mail Race.” This networking challenge connects students from all around the United States by sharing information about their school, community, and personal interests. Students use the internet to find the address of a faraway school and then write to them. Ms. Ransom’s class has already received postcards from schools in Massachusetts, Washington, and Kentucky. They are now set to mail their first batch of postcards to schools in Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Alaska, and California. Let the writing begin!
