Aunt Olga's Christmas Postcards. I use this to introduce children to the concepts of postcards. Then, children are asked to supply a digital picture of their house. They then digitally decorate the house for Christmas, and we print them at Wal-Mart. The pictures (4x6) are the exact size to glue index cards on the back. Students then write postcard messages on the back and send them to someone else. A great mesh of digital technologies, literature, and the real world.
Below is the houses that were made last year, placed in an Animoto Slideshow.
