Postcards for a One-Room School

I've been sitting on this for a couple of months, but we finally found and purchased a postcard, and that made me think about sharing this with you.

A friend of mine is the schoolteacher in a one-room, eight-grade church school in Camden, South Carolina. US Geography is one of the major subjects (apparently across several or all grades), and they are pinning postcards to a map as a means of helping to make our nation a little more concrete in the students' minds.

Notice: If you're reading this after the 2007-2008 school year, please disregard it. I don't want to start any new articles on Snopes here.

However, if you're reading this during the '07-'08 school year, please consider buying a postcard from your area, and from any place you visit, and mailing it to
Camden SDA School
612 Boykin Road
Camden, SC 29020

Of course, I'm sure it's not difficult to come by postcards from SoCal, but I'll do this! Sounds like fun! And I'm all for students actually LEARNING geography (can we all remember Miss South Carolina? WOW!)
