The Lorax Cross-Curricular Unit: An integrated study of economics, conservation, context clues, vocabulary, and adjectives (Great for Earth Day!)
This unit has it all! It includes 5 days worth of activities across multiple subject areas, including reading, science, social studies, grammar, and writing to accompany The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. I’ve laid out detailed plans for each day that are easy to follow and fun for students! I’ve taught this unit for 5 years in both second and third grade, and it’s always a hit. It’s also easy to fit into a busy classroom schedule and adapt to varying class needs.
