Flat Family Project

We're starting a Flat Stanley Project with the girls, where we send their flat alter egos traveling around the world to learn about geography, science, history, cultures, language, religion, and anything else we can squeeze in. Each of the girls has a different goal for their project. I'm looking for people who will “host” one of our flat girls and then send the project on to the next stop.


Flat Eden - visit all 50 United States (and Washington, D.C.)
Flat Ivy - visit all 7 continents (Antarctica might be an exciting challenge)
Flat Maya - visit all biomes of the world (as listed here: http://bioexpedition.com/types-of-biomes-in-the-world/)


1. You'll receive Flat Eden, Flat Ivy, or Flat Maya and their corresponding notebooks in the mail.

2. Post to our facebook page or send us a postcard to let us know where our flat friends are in the world. (We will be studying those places as our flat versions travel.)

3. Take a few pictures of you and your flat friend hanging out, exploring the local area.

4. Tape or glue at least one physical picture to your page in the flat notebook with a description of what you and your flat friend did.

5. Feel free to share as many extra pictures as you want on the facebook page! This cuts down on postage weight (especially for the one hitting all 50 states).

6. Send the package on to someone else on the list. Personal addresses will not be posted publicly anywhere, but we will have a list of addresses in the notebook you receive. Cross your own name off the list once you've gotten it.

7. If there are any blank spaces and you know someone who would be willing to host, please feel free to send it their way! However, please make sure the person agrees and is expecting it. We don't want to lose our projects!
