Flat Stanley Goes to Antarctica

January 21st, 2009

The students of Blackhawk Elementary School in Freeport Illinois sent Flat Stanley with Mrs. Main to explore Cape Town South African and Antarctica. Mrs. Main shared her adventures with the 2nd grade students to show where Flat Stanley had traveled. This is an excellent way for the 2nd grade students to learn geography and science.
