FIELD TRIPS
A Trip to the Local Post Office

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: Nibley, Utah
Date Submitted: March 31, 2001

After a unit on letter writing, take a walking field trip (if possible) down to your local post office. Beforehand, have each student write a letter to someone they care about and seal each one in an envelope with a stamp. Teach your students how to address the envelopes, including how and where to put the return address. While at the post office, go on a tour of the building. Your students will be fascinated at how mail is dispersed and sorted. Before leaving, be sure to drop those letters off in the outgoing mail! Your students will hardly be able to wait for their friends and family to receive their mail!
