Lesson Plans:2009 Stamps pt 1



The first issues of the 2009 stamps include the 50th anniversary of Alaska statehood , 150th anniversary of Oregon Statehood, this year's Lunar New Year stamp featuring the Year of the Ox and a stamp commemorating Edgar Allan Poe. These stamps can lead to a number of lesson plans in geography, history, literature, and multi-cultural ideas just to name a few.
