Using the amazing book, Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss to help students connect to the character, Horton. Students will learn what wonderful character traits he has, and aspire to be more Horton-like themselves. This packet contains a lesson plan, character trait poster, reflection sheet, and a character awards certificate. This also helps to instill the importance of "Being true to your word!" by teaching the "I mean what I say, and say what I mean" phrase which Horton uses over and over in the text. Great connections to build strong character as students learn that actions are important in showing that you are responsible, kind, credible, reliable, etc.
