The Lorax

In celebration of Earth Day, we read The Lorax by Dr. Seuss and discussed the effects of the character’s actions and decisions. We also discussed the message that Dr. Seuss was sending through his story and we compared the ideas with things in our world today. We then created a cause-effect graphic organizer as a Shared Writing activity. We generated ideas for causes and then filled in our effects. We re-created our graphic organizer in Kidspiration, but have left the effect parts blank for others to try and complete!
