U.S. and Canada Highway Signs
This is a large and complete collection of highway signs that differ in style by location. These signs are organized by state, by Canadian province, and even by country! The collection was compiled by James Lin, a graduate student at the University of California in Berkeley, and it includes links to related sites. Almost every highway is a numbered route. You may wish to get a road map and show children how to trace these numbered routes by looking for the route number.
United States Postal Service: ZIP Code Lookup and Address Information
If you have a street address, you can find out the ZIP code. Do you know your ZIP+4 code? Use it to speed your mail delivery. You can also find out which city or town a particular ZIP code belongs to. Remind children to never give out their name and address over the Internet. This site will not put children at risk. To help raise their safety awareness though, you may show children addresses from catalogs or letters and let them type in the ZIP code numbers. Help them understand how ZIP codes help letter carriers sort the mail they must deliver.
