Out of Old England in the 1630s-Flat Me Project
Students write letters to penpals. For this geography/literacy lesson, students become penpals with a classroom in England to learn about customs and society across the ocean. Flat Stanley by Will Holton is read aloud, and students decorate a "flat me" to look like themselves. Students follow a letter template and include personal information to be shared with their penpals. A bibliography is included.
