Postcard templates

I designed this template for a unit I am working on for United States Geography.  I plan to have students use this template during a study on a selected state.  They will draw a picture of one important location from the state and write a letter to the class as if they were visiting the location.  I also am going to send mystery postcards from mystery locations and have the students research where the postcard came from.

This template could be used for many activities, though.  Such as: students could write a postcard from the prospective of a character from a book and draw a setting; foreign language students could choose a location from the country they are studying, print a picture and write the postcard in the language they are studying, in math students could draw a tessellation...  The opportunities are endless.
