Pen Pals

Students in the multi-age classroom at Edison Elementary have been busy sending and receiving letters from pen pals across the country.  In their letters, the students shared what it’s like to live in Michigan. 

So far, students received letters and cards back from classrooms in Wisconsin, Georgia, Texas, South Carolina, Minnesota, Connecticut, Iowa, California, and Washington DC.  In receiving these letters, Edison students learned about these different states and located each state on the map.   

Students were thrilled to participate in this Pen Pal program and loved having the opportunity to teach students across the country about Michigan!  They looked forward to receiving response letters and learning about other states too!
