    FS activities

    This is my 1st year with the project, but this is what we've done. Each of my students began by making their Flat Stanley, myself included, these were laminated and sent to various classrooms across the US. (I got the OK from teachers prior to sending them.) We included a journal with our FS, and a short questionaire. As we get them back, we read the info, plot the location with a tac on the map (we can discuss this in detail, how far away it was from us, which direction, weather, etc.) I've been keeping all of our info and memorabilia alphabetically in 2 binders. I've got enough adresses for each FS to go on 2 trips-- so then the child chooses his/her next 'ticket,' and we compare their 2nd destination to their first by looking at the map also.

    I have visiting Stanleys from other states as well. My students take turns taking them home, they write about their adventures in a journal, and bring them back the next day. They really love this!
