Second Graders read the book Flat Stanley written by Jeff Brown. He was a young boy who was flattened by a bulletin board. He was so flat that he could mail himself in a letter all around and he had great adventures.
Second Grade wanted to make their own Flat Stanleys and mail them around the United States to see what kind of adventures they could have. Our Flat Stanleys brought back pictures, information, souvenirs, treats and even T-shirts for the whole class!
We learned through Flat Stanley about location, traditions and different cultures in our country. Students presented their information to the class and we colored all the states that our Flat Stanleys had visited on our maps!
