Room 211's Flat Students
Travel the World!
After reading the book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown, we decided we would like to go on our own exciting vacations to visit family and friends.

  • We worked with our families to think of friends or family members in different states or countries and brought in their addresses.
  • Then we made our "Flat Students" at school. (See below)
  • Next we addressed our mailing and return envelopes.
  • Finally, we sent them off with a letter of introduction.

We asked our "host family" to take our Flat Student to a statue, landmark, or monument that is important to their city, state, or country (a perfect match for our Social Studies work this year).

We'll keep you posted!
