Step 1: Reading / Video
If you have the book “The Lorax” read it aloud to your child.
For those of you who do not have the book, watch the following video.
Step 2: Save the Trees Poster
Next, onto creating a poster stressing the importance of saving the trees! Print off the document located at the links below.
Work with your child to complete the activity. Remember for a top-quality poster the message should be clear and easy to read.
Step 3: Outdoor Activity – Nature Walk
