This project aims to foster tolerance and understanding of cultures other than your own. After teachers register, the facilitator matches you with a partner class. Once paired, classes send each other a Teddy Bear or other soft toy by airmail through the normal postal system. The bear sends home diary messages by email or through the iEARN Teddy Bear Forum at least once a week. The students write the diary messages as if they are the visiting bear describing its experiences in the new culture. Registration is important to find a partner, even after matching your partner needs to contact you. Especially include the correct e-mail address, phone number, postal address. A typo can cause a trouble which will take extra time to start TBP between eager teachers.
PLEASE NOTE: This project involves postal mailings, so participants are encouraged to plan ahead to estimate whether associated costs are within their budget.
