Many students in S23Jade have been thinking and talking about the environmental issues raised in the Dr Seuss story “The Lorax”.
They have discussed, acted out and spoken at a town meeting using the different perspectives of the creatures involved in the story.
As a “wrap up” activity students were asked to design a Thneed Factory that was more environmentally positive and sustainable than the one in the story. They were asked to consider the energy used, the pollution released and the effect on the living creatures around the factory, the noise and the transportation of the finished Thneeds around the country.
There were many fantastic ideas and suggestions made by the students – please look at the following pictures of parts of their work.
What do you think? What would you do to improve the environment at the Thneed Factory? Leave a comment below.
We celebrated Book Week with a Make It Challenge in the Library.
Students were asked to “Connect to Reading” by creating a model of some sort of a book they were reading.
We had lots of very creative entries – people used lego, boxes, wood, minecraft, glitter jewels, drawings and pipe cleaners to construct a model. Lots of interesting connections to stories and reading 🙂
