Flat Stanley is a wonderful story about a young boy who is flattened (but unharmed) by a falling bulletin board. He is able to do things that no human can do, such as mail himself across the country in an envelope!
This makes for a great project for students! Students will create their own Flat Stanley to mail to friends/family across the world. In the process, they will be learning geography skills as well.
Comprehension questions: a packet of questions for students to answer as they read the story (answer key included).
Vocabulary: students will look up the definitions of challenging words as they read through the novel.
Activity Sheets: graphic organizers and writing prompts for students to show their understanding of the story.
