Post: Join The Ollie Project!!
Posted by Karen on 7/12/06
We still need: AK, DE, HI, MN, MT, NE, NM, ND, OR, SC,
SD, UT, VT, WV, WY
Our project centers around a stuffed puppy named Ollie!
He wants to travel across the country meeting children
from each state. We are looking for a participating class
from EACH OF THE 50 STATES! (This project combines a
traveling buddy and a 50 state postcard exchange)
TO LEARN MORE…
and click on Ollie's Travels or Traveling Buddy Project
Ollie will travel around the country. He will have time
to visit each class for ONE DAY ONLY. If he stayed
longer, and it took him a week to get to the next state,
it would end up taking almost a full year for his journey
(remember, there are 50 states and 52 weeks in a year)!!
We want to hurry him along on his journey so that
he is able to make a full trip around the United States
before school lets out for summer (many let out in May).
Each class will send a postcard to the other classes to
let them know that Ollie has arrived safely. We can learn
more about your area if you also include other information
about your state.
Please also send 1-2 paragraphs by email describing what
your class did with Ollie. Include digital pictures
and/or links to your classroom or school web pages! I
will add this to his online travel journal, so all classes
can keep track of his travels!
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SIGNING UP, please copy and paste
following information into an email and send it to
I hope you will join us!! Thanks! Karen :o)
