Remember, I only have a smattering of ideas. Many of them are seriously borrowed from others. I assume Kristin knew I would post this and share her idea with the other blog readers. It's a really fun envelope and I'm sure it will inspire several other blog readers. The map is peeking through a window. The envelope is a recycled window envelope.
I love maps. I always scored in the 99th percentile on map reading in the Iowa Test of Basic Skills. I lived in Minnesota from K through 12th grade (when I was subjected to the testing) and I think we all hated Iowa because of their stupid tests. I wonder if they even exist any more. I'm not going to research the topic as it would just get my blood boiling. Standardized testing makes my blood boil. Not that I did poorly, I just didn't like the principle of telling people they were *bad* at something. If they were bad, they just needed someone to explain it differently.
Thank you, Kristin. I will be sending a snail mail thank you - hopefully pretty soon.
