This Resource Pack was developed based on a great idea posted in the forum under the topic of "FlipPals anyone?" You will find cute Flippy and Flippette characters, plus, accessories and sample pages, for help in preparing 'Traveling Flipcharts'.
This resource pack will install in Shared Collections/General/Flippy
More Ideas to think about (from the forum)

How you present this information is up to you and your class.

At the end of Flippy's adventures, we'll have a flipchart of wondrous places to learn about!
