Idea by Mary, a 2nd Grade Teacher, in Benton, AR.
This year, after we read the classic book, The Lorax by Dr. Seuss (Random House Books for Young Readers, 1971), I’ll have students read the new book, How to Help the Earth by the Lorax by Tish Rabe (Random House Books for Young Readers, 2012). I’ll have my students discuss how they can impact the earth in a positive way at home and at school. My class will also lead a recycling drive for soda cans at school, and use the funds to provide more books for the library.
