Interns visit Congressional Stamp ExhibitPosted by Morgan R. & Marjie D. on July 30, 2012
During the children's three day camp, they began their days with an educational lesson about the history of stamp collecting. Children engaged in games such as stamp scavenger hunters. During the hunt they searched through the many free stamps, provided by the exhibit, in hopes to find what they were scavenging for.
It is amazing how tiny stamps can be the starting grounds to a whole educational lesson on a variety of topics, such as wildlife or the history of past U.S. presidents. It allows the kids to have colorful images of real-life stories. Stamp Camp USA encourages children to not only learn, but also engage in teamwork and develop leadership skills. I was very impressed by the Congressional stamp exhibit and hope it continues to enrich children’s and adult’s lives.
