So here's a simple Language Arts idea for Earth Day.
This lesson idea is easy to apply to any book you may read to your class.
First I read my students The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
Then we went over the storyline.
With a little help from me, we came up with 19 steps to the story.
Next, gave the kids some tips on how to draw the main characters of the story.
Next I cut the chart paper into strips and gave each student a sentence to copy down.
I used the Lorax blackline master from What the Teacher Wants' "Going Green" Earth Day Unit.
I drew a picture for the cover as we are going to put all these pages into a class book.
After the cover is laminated, I will put all the kids pages together and bind it as a book. I'm glad I numbered the strips and I made the children write the number down on their page so that I can assemble the book in the right order.
Below are a few examples of my student's pages (in no particular order)
Some of their pictures really made me laugh. I'm always amazed at children's creativity. Aren't you?
