Ms. Zamora from Toledo OH is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Visit Asia and Africa Without Leaving the Classroom

My students need 100 domestic and 200 airmail stamps to send letters to the US embassies in Asia and Africa and the ambassadors to this country from the two continents as well as UN delegates.

My Students

My students are from an older ethnic neighborhood on the East Side of Toledo, Ohio. We are a Title I school and we are very close to all students being eligible for free and reduced lunch. My students lack basic supplies most days.

Although my students are economically disadvantaged, they are awesome kids.

I love teaching and try to give the students experiences and challenges as often as possible. Beyond the academic challenges, I encourage them to think creatively and find skills and talents that they didn't know they had.

My Project

My students will be studying the continents of Asia and Africa this year. The letters they are writing have three destinations. They will be sending letters to the American Embassies in all of the countries in the two continents. They will be sending letters to the US embassies of those countries in DC. They will also send letters to the United Nations delegates from Asia and Africa. We plan to send 200 letters internationally and 100 domestically which is why we are asking for the airmail forever stamps and the domestic forever stamps for this project.

The students will be asking for information about the government of the country as well as cultural and social atmosphere.

They will inquire about economics, US relations and special features of the country.

Not only will they be learning Social Studies, they will be learning important writing skills in writing the letters. Penmanship will also be part of the project.
