We Loved the Flat Stanley Project!

2KJ and 2KM have loved doing the Flat Stanley project with Mrs McKenzie and B4 and B3 in New Zealand!

You can read all about our project here. A week after we sent our flat people to B4 and B3, they arrived safely in Reefton, New Zealand. We received the flat people from New Zealand at about the same time. We were so excited!

Each student chose a flat person to look after at home for a week. Here’s a few excited 2KJ and 2KM students with their New Zealand flat friends!

NZ flat people

The students had to write a diary for their flat person, describing all the fun activities they got up to while in Australia. Some students even took photos of the flat people!


Ryley, Amelie, Kayla and Will took their flat people on a tour of Leopold Primary School. I bet it’s different to school in New Zealand!

The flat people had a wonderful time in Australia. They went to swimming lessons and tennis lessons, jumped on trampolines, visited the Port Fairy Folk Festival, went camping, travelled to Warnambool, went to the circus, rode motorbikes, went to birthday parties and lots more! Molly’s mum even took the flat person to her work for the day!

Some parents emailed us photos of the flat people. Check out what they got up to at with some of our students at home!

What did you like showing your flat person?

What do you think our flat people got up to in New Zealand?

If you had to look after a flat person from another country, what would you show them?

    Hi my name is Quinn I really liked the Flat Stanley project. I liked playing with Flat Poody.

    Our favourite thing was going to the circus.

    Warm Wishes Quinn.:evil:

    • Dear Quinn,

      I liked the Flat People Project too.

      My favourite part of the project was going to Moomba and the swimming pool because Flat Stevie laughed.

  2. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,
    I thought your flat people were really cute. I wish I was in your classroom. Do you like arts that involve paper? How do you make flat people?
    From Matthew

    • @ Hannah,

      thanks for your comment and for good luck.

      I am Mia. What would you do with your Flat Hannah?

      Your freind

  4. @ 2KM and 2KJ,

    I like the Flat person project.

    If I had a Flat person from a another country I would take him to a swimming pool and put him in the deep end he would never want to get out.

    I think Flat me went to the movies.

    • Dear Jarrod,

      I think the Flat Person Project is a good idea too.

      If I had another flat someone I’d take him or her to the speedway.

      I can’t wait to find out what the Flat Me has been up to.


  5. Dear Mrs Morris,Miss Jordan and students,

    Wow you have taken your flat people to a lot of wonderful places. I really enjoyed watching your slideshow.
    When Flat Stanley came to visit me I took him to the Melbourne Market and he got a chance to meet my dog.

    If flat Stanely came to visit me again I would love to take him for a joy ride along the rally trail.
    I really enjoyed having him visit me last year.

    From Bianca.

    • @ BB,

      What was the flat persons name you took home?
      The flat persons name I took home is flat Emily.


  6. Dear 2KM and 2KJ
    Wow, you have given our flat people a wonderful time in Australia. Thank you!
    We are giving your flat people a few more days in New Zealand because they are having a great time too! We think we will be able to put them on the plane home on Friday.
    I know that some of them have been farming and horse riding and swimming.
    They are very excited to tell you what they have done.

    from Mrs McKenzie

    • @ Mrs McKenzie,

      Well, your flat people are on their way back to New Zealand, I hope they enjoy the flight back and they’re not too tired! All of the flat people had a fantastic time at Leopold Primary School and at the students’ houses. They took them on some real adventures!

      We can’t wait to hear what our flat people got up to with all of you! What a fun project this has been!

      Your blogging pal,
      Miss Jordan

  7. Dear Mrs Morris, Miss Jordan and students,

    How wonderful to have so many flat people to come and visit you all. What I like the most is that you got to take home and show them the wonderful sites around Geelong.

    I wish I was a flat person and could fit into an envelope and see the world and make heaps of new friends.
    If I did have a flat person coming to visit me I would love to take him/her to Luna Park. Hopefully we can go on all the rides together all day.

    From AA.

    • @ aa,

      Hi my name is Haille from 2KJ.If I were flat I would love to slide under the door like Flat Stanley did.

      I wonder what my flat person got up to in New Zealand.


  8. @ Miss Jordan,
    I loved showing Flat Geneva around Port Fairy! It was really fun!
    I think my flat person went for a walk and maybe went to the movies because that’s what I like to do!
    See you tomorrow,
    Warm wishes,

    • Hi Charlotte,

      I think you have some great ideas what your Flat Charlotte got up to while she was in NZ!
      Your dad said you enjoyed showing your Flat Geneva around Port Fairy I’m sure the real Geneva will enjoying reading the diary you kept for her!


    • Dear Charlotte,

      We liked looking at your pictures of you and flat Geneva on the blog. It looks like you had fun at Port Fairy. I hope you got to bed early and didn’t stay up talking all night. Did you buy anything at Port Fairy? Did you both like the Wiggles concert?

      Eb & Kim

  9. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    We really enjoyed looking at your blog page and seeing the video of what some of our flat people have been busy doing in Australia.
    We liked your school chickens and the Indonesian Garden looks beautiful. We especially liked the elephant and wondered where it came from?
    We noticed the icey poles (we call them ‘ice blocks) and your class mascot called Leo. B3 is thinking a class mascot is a fantastic idea!
    It was very exciting to see our flat people having such a fun time.
    Your flat people have been busy too and we are looking forward to sending them home to you with their diaries to read.

    from Mrs Webb and the students of B3.

  10. Dear 2KJ and 2KM,

    I had lots of fun with flat Paige she was keeping me company in hospital.

    I will see you all tomorrow for the blogging activity if Mum can get someone to watch Connor. I cannot wait to see you all.

    Best Wishes,

    • Dear Eb,

      I hope you get better in a week or so.

      I am glad you came to the blogging afternoon or else I would of cried all night because I haven’t seen you for a long time.

      Hope you get better soon

  11. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    Your flat people turned out amazing! It seems like they’ve already been on so many wonderful adventures.

    I think Flat Stanley had the right idea when he was mailed on his vacation. If I was flat, that’s exactly what I’d do! I think I’d mail myself from the United States to Australia to visit my fellow flat people and all the students of 2KM and 2KJ!

  17. Maybe you could have a puppet show where every thing is flat! I wonder how well the flat person that went to work worked. Did you enjoy making the flat people?

  18. Dear Mrs Morris, Miss Jordan and class,

    We love your flat people project that NZ sent!
    We would love to make one. If we get a chance we will (maybe). Its good doing projects because you get to learn about people.

    It was very interesting looking at your video’s. It looks like everyone had fun with Flat People. It would be cool if you did a puppet show with the flat people. Have you done a puppet show with the flat people?

    Your Old Students,
    Ash and Liv 3DD :mrgreen:

  19. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    Great post! All of the Flat Stnley people looked great. I would like to do the Flat Stanley project myself. In my class we do very cool stuff just like the Flat Stanley project. Keep up the great work! Happy Blogging!

    Taylor 🙂

    • Dear Taylor,

      Thank you for saying that the flat people look great.

      What cool stuff do you do in your class?


  20. @ Hi Mrs Morris and mrs Jordan,

    Jack and I like eating Steak lamb chops carrot pancake.
    We like the blog. I think it is great for kids to learn.
    I have been to Alaska a long time ago.

    evil Brendan and good Jack

  21. @ Hi Class,

    Jack wants me to say that he beats me at Soccer all the time. He is also really good at Bay Blades. I’d love to win just once!

    Jack is a great kid. Watch out for him on the bike too. He is a powerhouse!!

    Brendan and Jack

  22. @ Hi Class,

    Having the chance to come to class ans see all the blog work you do is a real honour. It is very impressive indeed. There was nothink like this as school back in the 80’s.


  23. Dear Mrs Jordan

    I really liked the Flat Person project.

    I had fun with Flat Tristan. Flat Tristan had fun at the Moscow Circus.

    Hamish 😈

  24. @ Miss Jordan, Mrs Morris & class,

    I wonder what my flat Haille got up to in New Zealand.
    I also wonder what both classes flat people got up to in New Zealand.

    Kind regards,

  25. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,
    I like your flat people work because it is a good chance to learn about others. Your classroom looks a little bit like ours, so do our flat people.
