Earth Day Fun!

· · · · · · · · ·
We have had such nice, Spring weather here lately.  It’s consistently been in the 70’s and 80’s for a little over a week now.  To say I am loving it would be quite the understatement! 
Speaking of Spring, Earth Day is only a week away, and I spent this week getting ready for it.  In the past, I’ve always based my Earth Day lessons and activities around Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax.  I once had a Lorax unit with all of the activities included, but since Seuss Enterprises no longer wants teachers creating resources to go with their books (grrrr!), that is no more. 
The good news is that I finally got around to updating the unit and replaced all the Lorax references with an Earth Day theme!  The unit can be used by itself or with an Earth Day-themed book, and if you’d like to use The Lorax, it will work perfectly with it as well! If you previously purchased my Lorax unit on TpT, you can get the update (which also includes a few new activities), by re-downloading it from your TpT Dashboard.
