Postcard Creator (Interactive Website)
The Postcard Creator helps students learn to identify all the typical parts of a postcard, and then generate their own postcard messages by typing information into templates. Students fill in the address, details on the postcard’s artwork, and the postcard message. The finished postcard can then be previewed, edited, and printed. After printing their texts, students can illustrate the front of their postcards in a variety of ways, including drawing a picture, creating a collage of images, or printing and pasting clipart in place. The tool is easy to use and includes a printable PDF students can use to draft and revise their work before creating and printing their final postcards on the computer. This interactive tool requires Adobe Flash Player.
