The Lorax

Who else is excited about The Lorax movie coming out this week?!?! I usually do The Lorax around Earth Day, but with the movie coming out, I think it would be a great time to go ahead and visit this classic children's book! I created a little unit to go along with the book. I know it's a little late, but I'm happy to say it is finished!

***Since Dr. Seuss Enterprises will not allow teachers to create resources about any Seuss books/characters, I removed all Lorax references from the unit and repackaged it as an Earth Day Unit.  The majority of the activities in the Lorax Unit are still included but now have an Earth Day theme.  It will still work perfectly with any Lorax theme, in addition to an Earth Day theme.  The Lorax craft is no longer included.  Scroll down past The Lorax photos to take a look at the new unit!***

Here' s a look at the new unit (now repackaged with an Earth Day theme):
