Start students on the path to activism with this writing activity. After reading "The Lorax", students choose their own cause to speak for. Students can illustrate and write about their illustration using one of the two versions of the activity. For pre-writers or English Language Learners (ESL/ELL), choose the option with a larger box for drawing and fewer lines and have them label as much as they can.
Perfect for Read Across America week/Dr. Seuss's birthday!
Brainstorm a list of causes to "speak for" with your students first to get the ideas flowing.
