Back to School Project Ideas - Holiday Card Project


In the iEARN Holiday Card Project, facilitated by Judy Barr in Australia, teachers and students prepare an envelope containing holiday cards and send them using snail mail to the other schools in their group between October and December.  Students are invited to make Christmas, New Year's, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Eid, or other cards celebrating their special holidays. Students are encouraged to explain how their family and their community celebrates, the type of food that is eaten and other traditions associated with the event. Each school will be placed in a group with approximately seven other schools and will prepare either handmade or purchased cards to send to each of the other schools.

If you are already an iEARN member, register for the project on the Holiday Card Project Forum on the Collaboration Centre.  To join iEARN, see
