Flat Stanley’s Seattle Monorail Adventure!

Flat Stanley is visiting Seattle from Alexander, Virgina! For those of you who have not heard about Flat Stanley, he is a character from the popular children’s book originally published in 1964.

The Flat Stanley Project began in 1995 by Dave Hubert, a third grade school teacher in Ontario, Canada.  After reading the book, ‘Flat Stanley’, students have the opportunity to take a paper cut-out of Stanley and mail him to someone who lives far away.  Once you receive Flat Stanley, you can keep a journal of all the different places Stanley visits and activities he participates in.

The goal of the project is to increase literacy, letter-writing skills, and to build a stronger sense of community.  We made a video journal of Stanley’s visit to the Seattle Center Monorail – enjoy!
