During my Fall Break, we returned to Jamaica. We "adopted" Penny the Pirate for the week.
One of my friends/co-worker is doing a project with her class, which she calls "The Pirates". Her whole classroom is pirate-themed. She has put her own spin on "Flat Stanley". She is sending out "Penny the Pirates" & "Perry the Pirates". People agree to take them on their travel/adventures & document with pictures. She has even created a Facebook page (Room 7's Pirates) where people post their pics. Her goal is to get a pirate on every continent, though Antarctica may be difficult. If you'd like to adopt a pirate for a bit, let me know...I can get you in touch with her.
I thought I'd post some of Penny's adventures here.
Here's the letter that came with Penny.
