FC: THE JOURNEY OF FLAT STANLEY | Mrs. Duncan & Mrs. Cape's First Grade Casar Elementary School 2012-13

1: Flat Stanley Travels from Hatteras to Hollywood | AUSTRALIA | ARRIVED 21 DEC 2011 | At the beginning of the school year we asked for addresses to places of interest for our class to send our book character, Flat Stanley. We included a letter to participants asking for them to take Flat Stanley around their place in the world and send us back information and pictures. We began our study with Flat Stanley visiting two historic sites in North Carolina; Cape Hatteras and Mount Mitchell State Park. Next, a trip to Washington, D.C. helped us learn about the sites near our nation's capitol. Then, Flat Stanley traveled west to Colorado and California. Last, he took a trip down to Florida and Georgia before retuning home to Casar, NC! Turn the pages for a look at all we learned from Flat Stanley's visits!

2: The journey begins in Cape Hatteras, NC where Flat Stanley saw one of North Carolina's famous lighthouses. He even climbed to the top with one of the light house keepers!

4: Big Tom Wilson was a true mountain man. He led a search party to help find Dr. Elisha Mitchell in 1857.

5: From the coast of NC, Flat Stanley moved west to the beautiful mountains! He learned that Mount Mitchell was named after Dr. Elisha Mitchell. He lived from August 19, 1793 to June 27, 1857. He was a scientist, educator and preacher. He came to the Black Mountains for about 30 years of his life. .He measured them and found out that Mount Mitchell was the highest peak east of the Mississippi River! He is buried at the Summit

6: A common bird, the Common Raven | Flat Stanley helps add up purchases at the souvenir store. | Black bear exhibit | A common bird, the Roughed Grouse | The two skulls on the Bobcat fur are: Bobcat, the smaller, the larger is a Mountain Lion skull which is also known as a Panther or Cougar. | Animals from left to right: Gray Fox, Red Fox, Northern Bobcat, Coyote, Raccoon, Striped Skunk, Virginia Opossum, and Long-Tailed Weasel.

7: Old Mitchell Trail (2.2 miles) This trail was used by explorers as early as the 1800s.

8: Washington, DC | the capitol | NOV. 2012 | The Library of Congress | Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum

9: In the nation's capitol, Flat Stanley also visited the Capitol building (not pictured). This is where members of the government meet about making new laws. The Capitol building is 751 feet long! | The Washington Monument | The Smithsonian

11: Colorado | The trip in Colorado started in Denver, known as the Mile High City. This means that the city is one mile above sea level!

12: Colorado Springs, Colorado | The picture above shows Flat Stanley at the Garden of the Gods which is just outside of Colorado Springs, Colorado. He couldn't stay here long though because there are lot of things to see out west!

13: Since there are no restaurants on top of a mountain, Flat Stanley and the crew had to make their own food. They even made pizza! | Next, Flat Stanley hiked to Pike's Peak Summit. They had to climb with all of their gear on their backs!

14: Flat Stanley then moved on to California. He is visiting Playa del Ray in the picture above. Playa is the word for beach in Spanish. He got to walk around the streets of Hollywood and meet some pretty important people!

15: One of the people Flat Stanley got to meet was Betty White! Betty White is a famous American actress. In this picture she is at a book store signing her autograph to a book she wrote.

16: While in California, Flat Stanley got to see the Endeavour, a real life space shuttle! The Endeavour flew many astronauts to space from 1992 to just recently in 2011. The shuttle was retired last fall.

17: After leaving California, Stanley went to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Here he saw a shuttle launch pad (bottom right) where many shuttles, like the Endeavour, and other rockets have been launched into space.

18: Traveling up the East Coast, Flat Stanley's last stop was Georgia. In Savannah, Georgia Flat Stanley rode on a trolley (lower right) and saw a river boat (upper left).There is also a museum of history in Savannah where he was able to meet an American Soldier from the revolutionary War (upper right) .The men in Savannah like to gather and perform reenactments of the battle so visitors can experience what happened long ago in war time.

19: There were many animals along the trip through Georgia. Flat Stanley went to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island. Here, marine biologists help wounded and sick sea turtles recover until they are well enough to be placed back into the wild. Watch out Stanley! Not all animals are safe, like this alligator lurking in the swamp waters.

21: The trip was lots of fun, but back to Casar, NC it is, Flat Stanley!
