Stamp Show

This Saturday there will be a Stamp Show hosted by the Cresthaven Stamp Club in West Palm Beach, FL. It takes place at the Barkley Club House, 2605 Barkley Drive on October 24, 2020, from 11- 3 with an auction at noon. 

They hold meetings on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday at 1pm. If you get a chance to check out their website or come to a meeting, it is well worth your time. 

I think it would be a good time for teachers and students to attend a stamp show. If you don't live near this one, find one in your area and check it out. 

I think it would be a great research project for students. They can write about what they learn or make a brochure on stamp collecting, or make a photo display. 

Students can talk to collectors and find out why they collect stamps and what specific categories of stamps they collect. 

Students can learn how to start collecting and many collectors are more than happy to share their love of stamp collecting. 

Students can find stamps for a specific time in history and learn more about that time from the stamps. 

Students can find stamps on famous people or places. 

Students will learn how to organize their stamps once they collect them. 

Students will learn what supplies and tools they might need. 

Teachers will get ideas for different lessons that they can do by using stamps.
