Postage stamps: a teacher's aid

The Jamaica Gleaner reports that teachers have an additional resource that they may not have been aware of - the postage stamp.

The paper says, "Increased interest can be generated by using the postage stamp as a teaching aid, and this applies across the age group spectrum from kindergarten to the secondary level."

"Postage stamps actually provide a glimpse into life within any country. Situations that may be familiar to us may be experienced by someone else in another land far away. Details in each postage stamp's design allow a teacher to explore ideas related to the lesson, thus creating an effective method for enhancing the learning experience while focusing on the topic at hand."
