Our class is involved in a very fun and exciting Geography project based on the book "Flat Stanley" which was written by Jeff Brown. In the book, Stanley Lambchop is flattened by a falling bulletin board. One of the advantages to being flat is that his parents can put him in a large envelope and mail him for a visit to his friends in California.
Our project idea came from http://members.xoom.com/FlatStanley Students each made a paper Flat Stanley who spent time with them before being sent to friends, relatives, and famous people around the world. They recorded information about their time with Stanley in a journal and look forward to having Stanley and his journal returned to our school in May. Our class hopes to hear about Stanley's travels and the communities he visits through postcards, letters, and Email. So far Flat Stanley has visited these U.S. cities, and also JAPAN (Okinawa), IRELAND, THAILAND, CZECH REPUBLIC and TOKYO!!
