Bonus Activity: Snail Mail

Bonus Activity: Snail Mail
nz postcard.jpg
In the 1950s, most people communicated with one another by writing letters. According to the NZ history website, New Zealanders sent over 200 million letters and postcards between 1950 and 1960. That is an average of 87 letters per person!

For this activity, imagine that you are living in New Zealand in the 1950s. Use Google Draw* to design the front of a postcard that you could send to a friend. Try to include elements of Kiwiana in your design (e.g. Pohutukawa trees, Hokey Pokey ice cream, etc). Post a copy of your postcard picture to your blog. Be sure to describe what you have drawn on your blog beneath the picture.

*You will need to make a copy of the Google Draw template to create your postcard.

  1. Hey there Hilary thanks for designing your own postcard. It's awesome to see how much effort you've put into creating this. I love how you've included a lot of different native birds and arranged them in a pattern. What made you choose to put the other pictures on the post card?

    Awesome work!
