Take a Field Trip through the 1960s. Celebrate the Century Education Series.
Postal Service, Washington, DC.
This is the second in a series of six kits that the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is publishing to help teach through stamps the history of the 20th Century and the people, places, and events that have shaped this nation during the past 100 years. Each kit is designed as a complete and independent unit. This kit, covering the decade of the 1960s, contains: (1) welcome letter from the USPS; (2) ten teacher's lesson cards; (3) one "Resource Guide"; (4) thirty "topic cards"; (5) ballot (with return envelope); (6) student magazine; and (7) poster. Kits are distributed in a kit storage box, with multiple copies of some materials. On the basis of the ballots, the USPS intends to issue a limited edition of 15 commemorative stamps celebrating the decade of the 60s. Subsequent kits will gradually cover the entire 20th century.
