Flat Stanley- Daytona (Group 3)

Talk about an excited group of students!! 

At the beginning of the year when we sent out our flat classes on their field trips around the world I didn't consider the fact that I would have new students at the end of the year. These students watched as our flat groups returned and were patient but sad that they did  not have a flat version of themselves. 

With only a small hope that we could get an adventure squeezed in at the end of the year we sent our group to Daytona International Speedway. Ed Sweeney, guest service supervisor, hosted our group 3. These were our adventures in Florida:

Daytona Beach
Daytona International Speedway
Richard Petty Driving Experience (We did this!!)
Jimmie Johnson Car (winner of the Daytona 500!!)
The trophy case of all Daytona 500 Winners (with a student lead discussion about how many races are won before you can even make it to the Daytona 500 and how hard that is)

The students all got their very own Daytona car! The most exciting part for the kids was looking at the huge speedway and knowing that they were their eating pizza with Ed. Teachers favorite was seeing the students in the netting of the winning Jimmie Johnson Car! Wow! 

Thank you Daytona International Speedway!
