Where In The USA Has Our Email Gone??

It's time for a class project!!

I am a teacher in a first-grade class, and we are learning about our country. We will be running an experiment for two weeks, between November 10-November 21. We will send out an email and see how far it can travel in two weeks! Hopefully, we can reach all 50 states by then!!

Here is how it will work. I will send out an e-mail explaining our project. In it, I will ask people to send our class an email back to the following address:

TESClass@gmail.com

I will ask people to tell us the city and state in which they live, and if they like, a fun fact about their area. Each morning I will read the emails to the students and we will talk about the different places and put a pin in a map to show all the places that our email has reached.

If you would like to participate in this, please leave your e-mail address in the comments and I will make sure to include you when I send out the first email on November 10. Please be aware that it will come from TESClass@gmail.com, and not my personal email address.

Thank you very much!

wow, those emails are true? I always delete because I thought it was just another forward/junk mail.
I'll help out since I know it's for you.

I'll join in! I'm part of an email mom's group that has members from FL to MA to CA so I might be able to get you a lot of states that way. I guess posting it on a message board, though, would be cheating...(as it's forum and not email based). But, I can help get you a lot of states through my email group. COUNT ME IN!
