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?
I'm also joining up with the Linky Party over at Sunny Days in Second Grade.
