Stamps (Philately)/Stamp Collection - Good Project Assignment Work ?


Dear Maxime

1. Can Stamp Collection be considered as a good Project Assignment work for School Children ?

2. Do you feel if considered as a part of project assignment,
ages 11-13 would be the most appropriate ages for school children ?.

My Opinion

Stamp collection will add General Knowledge. So it will be useful if taken as part of a project work along with taken as a hobby.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Dear Sir,

Stamp Collecting is a great project for a school assignment as it deals with geography, history, economics, topicals (birds, animals, famous people, presidents, etc).  Depending on the complexity of the subject I think an appropriate age would start at 8 and go up to 13.
