#1 Envelope Investigation Reflection

Envelope Observations- My envelope is blue. It was sent to an address in Dover, Delaware. The name of the person the envelope was intended for has been blacked out. There is a post mark over the stamp that says Happy Holidays and the envelope traveled to a post office in Royal Oak, Michigan and was stamped on December 30, 2006. There is a return address sticker in the upper left hand corner of the envelope, however the name of the sender has been blacked out and the senders city, state, country is not legible even when enlarged. On the back of the envelope there is black marker at the bottom.

Inferences- The envelope was mailed from another country. The envelope contained a Christmas card.

History- The envelope was mailed from a foreign country to someone who lives in Dover, DE. The envelope contained a Christmas card and did not arrive in time for Christmas.

  1. Peg-
    Do you use the envelope activity? Do you have any alternate activities that get at observations aversus inferences in a manner that is more relevant to students?
