We’re participating in the Great American Postcard Swap with other homeschool families, sending out postcards all over the country, and hopefully receiving 50 in all!
Our homeschool group recently held a USA Festival where kids signed up to study a state and create a project board and presentation on what they learned. We all also brought food from the states we studied to share for lunch. My boys had fun learning about Texas and cooking chili to share, and they did a great job speaking in front of the group.
The kids did a wonderful job on their display boards:
We requested free travel brochures from the Texas Department of Tourism to cut apart and use for the display board. My oldest included a press release he found on Percy Jackson author Rick Riordin’s website, since he is from San Antonio (and is one of my son’s favorite authors).

The kids did such a good job putting together their displays, and we learned some cool facts about some of the states we’ve gotten postcards from in the GAPS as well as some that we haven’t learned about yet. Trying out different foods was fun too!
