If you're looking for a good Internet pen-pal resources, there is a website, think.com, that only schools may join. Each student must be assigned a number, and there must be a monitor to post writing/responses -- that can be you. It is a safe site because no outsiders can post or get into it. Schools from around the world belong. You'll find uses for it beyond just pen pals, as students can send each other stickies -- notes about what they've written. It takes a little work to get it going, but is well worth the effort. We've heard from New Zealand, England, Germany, etc.
