Flat Stanley Visits the Missouri State Capitol!


Jefferson City, Missouri (848 miles from home)

Hey Jake and Ms. Rorie’s Class!

Thought you would like to see Flat Stanley having fun in the snow here in Missouri this week. He really enjoyed the white, fluffy stuff but he was ready to go back inside, because it sure was cold, and he forgot his jacket!

The weather in Missouri is typically very cold in the winter with lots of snow and usually in the mid 70’s during the summer.

After playing in the snow, Flat Stanley’s next stop in Missouri was to the state’s Capitol building in Jefferson City. On the other side of the Capitol is the Missouri river, which runs through the state and connects with the Mississippi.

Did you know Missouri is the Show-Me State? The meaning behind this phrase is that Missourians are typically not

convinced of something just by hearing about it. Instead, we want someone to “show us.” Flat Stanley enjoyed his stay in the Show-Me State and hopes you have fun learning about his travels and that he can come back again!

    Whoops! I wish it was mid-70s in the summer…more like humid and sticky heat in the 90s or above 🙂
