PostBox

Exploring Swiss Post

With five topical folders in the set – PostBox offers practical documents for a holistic and interdisciplinary learning experience based on the five key topics of “reaching an agreement”, “collecting and sorting”, “working”, “travelling” and “earning, saving, spending”.

Which teaching themes can be made into exemplary experiences thanks to Swiss Post? This question was key to the design of the teaching resource for middle school.

Since children’s experiences of their environment are complex and cannot be divided into different topics or reduced to their learning level, the “Swiss Post” theme lends itself very well to holistic and interdisciplinary teaching approaches. By exploring, thinking and acting, students discover many new experiences using the example of Swiss Post. The teaching ideas are prepared in such a way that they are appropriate for the whole range of abilities that exist in a class.

The offer is rounded off with didactic explanations, copy templates and a supplementary website with additional material.
