Second Graders Share Around-the-World Journeys of Flat Stanley
Our second grade class concluded their adventures with children’s book character Flat Stanley by presenting a carnival to their families and lower school students. Throughout their Flat Stanley journey, the second grade class learned about world geography, wrote their own Flat Stanley stories, and created scrapbooks. They even baked “flat” cookies which were served as a carnival treat! For the carnival, students designed booths about geography or Stanley’s travels -- a pinning Stanley on a map, a ball toss game identifying continents, and a board game taking Stanley on a journey.
"This project encompasses so many different kinds of learning for the second grade students," says teacher Ruth Rosenthal. "This year we did an animation where students became Flat Stanley and animated themselves in front of green screen and then used Hyperstudio to create a background."
