Flat Stanley has certainly come a long way from when I read the book (and yes, there was only 1) in the (cough cough) late 1970s! I remember loving the book itself, but now there is SO much more kids can do with this lovable character! There are more books featuring Flat Stanley, and many schools around the world take part in a fun activity to see where in the world Stanley can travel! There is even a musical (my son’s 5th grade class put it on last year and it was terrific)!
So of course I HAD to do a post dedicated to our friend Stanley! Since this is about education and teaching resources, I thought we could also try a little experiment, a virtual tour of Flat Stanley! Please comment below stating where you are learning about Flat Stanley! I can’t wait to see how far this post travels!
