  • In the book, Flat Stanley, by Jeff Brown, Stanley is squashed flat by a falling bulletin board. One of the many advantages is that Flat Stanley can now visit his friends by traveling in an envelope through the mail. In the project, students make paper Flat Stanleys and begin a journal with him for a few days. Then Flat Stanley and the journal are sent to another school where students there treat Flat Stanley as a guest and complete the journal. Flat Stanley and the journal are then returned to the original sender. Students can plot his travels on maps and share the contents of the journal.  However, this Flat Stanley project doesn't stop with snail mail. Watch the video as students use emerging technologies to expand their world.
  • Students at the middle school chronicled the process and classroom instruction to create a student documentary film. This film was broadcast on South Carolina Educational Television and then linked to the Official Flat Stanley Project Website. (below)   Webcam exchanges took place between classrooms at Jefferson, Petersburg, and Pageland Schools with  schools in other states and countries.
  • Project Photos can be viewed on subsequent pages.
