Dr. Seuss And The Lorax Are Taking Over Our Homeschool In March

As many of you may already know The Lorax comes out on March 2nd. Doesn't it look amazing? And since it is also Dr. Seuss's birthday on the 2nd there are a lot of really cool events going on (at least here in GA). So my wheels started turning and I decided why not do a  Dr. Seuss and The Lorax unit study for March? Since The Lorax was written by Dr Seuss as a warning against mindless progress and the danger it poses to the earth's natural beauty we will also be incorporating lessons and activities about saving the trees, planet and animals. I have also started gathering our Dr. Seuss reading materials  as well, I will share those in my next post since I am waiting for a few of them to arrive at the library still.
