PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I am the Lorax! I speak for the trees!

The Lorax is the superhero of Earth Day. This Lorax activity is the perfect way to decorate your classroom and teach your kiddos about Earth Day. Whether hanging from the ceiling or sitting on the shelf, your kiddos will love creating and putting on their own personal touches on these cuties.

Paper lanterns are great for developing fine motor skills such as: folding, coloring, painting, gluing, cutting, listening and following directions. Even my smallest kiddos can cut out the Lorax pieces. Embedded within this Lorax project are several activities for your kiddos…coloring, printing skills or writing.

These units are designed in a Mix and Match format. You are able to pick the pieces that you want, depending on the needs and the abilities of your students. There are so many different possibilities and various cutting templates.

Each Lorax lantern creation is designed with printed templates. As an option, before we start the lantern creation phase, I have my older kiddos research and write facts they have found about key environmental issues on the back of the lantern, on the arms and the legs. With my Kindies, we will write key words, draw pictures or write simple sentences. On the “body” of the Lorax the kids can copy the “Unless, someone like you”…phrase or design their own.

There are so many ways to create the Lorax lanterns using glitter, paper layering, leaves, shredded paper, tissue paper... Make sure to add the Lorax legs and arms…too cute!

In my classroom, creating the basic lantern will take my kiddos about 90 minutes (coloring & assembly) . Depending on if I am doing additional extensions or research, the lanterns will take me longer. I break up the creation process into small chunks, working on one piece at a time to ensure that my kids do the best job that they can. I make sure to always model each step of the lantern.


Included:
• Printed lantern templates
