Benjamin’s Pass the Apple Scavenger Hunt

One day while out flying, Benjamin the Million Dollar Teacher Project’s green owl mascot met Flat Stanley (a children’s book paper doll character). During their conversation, Flat Stanley told Benjamin all about the different people he had met, like the Presidents of the United States, and the cool places he had visited, like the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Benjamin then shared about the MDTP Pass the Apple program, in which Flat Stanley became so intrigued that he thought it would be fun and exciting for Benjamin to experience some of his own adventures with hard working teachers and students.

So Benjamin took Flat Stanley’s advice and launched his very own Scavenger Hunt!
