This resource contains questions based on the children's book "The Lorax" by Dr. Suess. You can choose to read the book to your students or click on the link at the bottom of the resource. This link sends you to a Play Post It Interactive Video. The students can watch the video version of the book and the video automatically stops and asks the students questions that align with the questions on their paper. Stopping throughout the film allows for classroom discussion. The film is around 25 minutes in length but this lesson lasts around 40-50 minutes depending on how much discussion your students have.
This resource was created to teach about the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest but it could be used to teach about deforestation of any region around the globe.
