[green]Got this e-mail forwarded to me and thought I'd share it with ya'll and help out this here kids with their project, and have fun.[/green]

[size=3]Hello!

We are in Mr.Street's 4th grade class at Newcastle Public School in
Newcastle, Nebraska.  Newcastle is a village with a population of
approximately 270 people in northeast Nebraska.  In Social Studies
we have  been studying the states and capitals and decided to map an
e-mail project. We are really curious to see where in the world our e-mail
will travel by the Internet throughout the rest of the school year.  We would
like your help please!  We ask that you do these two things:>
1)  E-mail us and tell us your location so that we can plot it on
our United States or World map (city/town,state/province,country)
2)  Forward this letter to as many people as possible,even if they
live in the same town as you.

Thank you for any help you can give us!  Our e-mail address is:
newcastle_4th_grade@yahoo.com We hope to hear from you soon.
Shine like Stars![/size=3]

I first saw this about 2 months ago. I sent them an e-mail and got a nice response from them. Sounds like they've had a good response from the public. I live about 40 miles from them and go coon,coyote, and deer hunting out that way. Real nice people. Besides, It's fun doing things like this for the kids.

What a neat idea.  I wish them well and hope we all contribute.  What a wonderful way to learn geography.

Please don't expect a reply. They are SWAMPED!  I'm from that little town and I'm here to tell you, they got LOTS of emails. Well over 100K since they started this last year.  USA Today and CNN just did a story on it last week.

But it is dang cool ain't it!

Here's a couple links to the stories:
