How Much Does It Cost To Mail a Letter?

Students discuss what they know about stamps and what is their purpose. They access the Postal Rate Commission site listed below to find out what the cost of a first-class stamp was from 1885 to present and then look at the First Ladies Library Timeline and try to figure out why the price has gone so high.
