Flat Stanley = Class Project

R8 had another class project due.

The end of the year project.

Project Flat Stanley.

Flat Stanley is a story about a boy who is flat boy and travels around world.

3rd grade students send Flat Stanley by mail to family members or friends and ask them to tote around this paper cut out of a boy and take him on an adventure. Then make a journal and take pictures and send him back for the students to give a report.

R8 sent his Flat Stanley to our cousin L in New York.

Let's just say that L gave us our monies worth!

L took him to work with her, on the subway, to Time Square, Central Park, The Empire State Building, The Statue of Liberty, to The New York Times, and so many other places. We had so much stuff we had to condense it down.

Here is the finished product.

Here is Flat Stanley meeting Morgan Freeman and Tony Bennett.

They are wax. I thought they were the real people until L told us she took Flat Stanley to the wax museum. But they looked real.

And here a close up of the finished product.

I did tell her to save the journal and all the pictures she took because she will have to do this again when R4 gets to 3rd grade. It just might save her from being so tired.

Flat Stanley has stayed with me a number of times. He's a very polite house guest and doesn't require much. We take him to the rodeo and buy him cotton candy.
