We combined Social Studies, Language Arts, and Science skills in this project. We used an atlas to locate states and their capitals, wrote friendly letters, and used the Internet to practice basic searching techniques.
After reading a non-fiction selection in our Reading textbook, titled Meet the Orchestra, we selected a music-related business to write to using the Internet Yellow Pages. We wrote letters to businesses that sold instruments, repaired instruments, or taught instrument lessons.
It is very exciting for children to receive mail addressed just to them! As we receive responses to the letters we sent, they will be added to the web page. Please follow the links below to read some of the letters we sent and the replies we received.
