This electronic field trip helps primary students see the integral part the U.S. Postal Service plays in their daily lives. Primary students follow the mail as it moves from mailbox to post office to mailbox.

With its emphasis on communication, this program reinforces the need for strong reading and writing skills and underscores the idea that individual actions can play a significant role in the community at large. The field trip is correlated to Kentucky’s Program of Studies and KELP Indicators.
