This fun, traveling unit has games, activities and centers that are inspired by Flat Stanley! You can center any Flat Stanley book around this unit and with these activities as they are not book specific. I have also included a new and updated Flat Stanley 2.0 project (previously available separately). These activities were created for 2nd graders and are aligned to the 2nd grade common core standards. Happy Traveling!
