USPS needs help!


The U.S. Postal Service has been in the news lately.  Does it seem like your mail takes longer to reach where you have sent it now?  Do you wonder why there are delays and whether things will change soon?  Read about the issues and make your own conclusions.


In this activity students appreciate the incredible network of workers and machines that sort and deliver about 150 billion pieces of mail each year. Students learn how it is all funded and try to decide how the Postal Service could earn more or spend less in their budget.  They finally get to think about whether the post office should be a government run service or a self-sustaining business.

For Adventurer members we have an editable Word docx, an Excel sheet showing our data and graphs, and  solutions/teaching-expectations sheet.
