  • Suggestions for teachers to guide students during a "read aloud" of Bill Peet's popular environmental book, with pages for students to fill in their own before, during, and after reading questions; this unit includes art prompts.
  • Looking for children's books about the environment? Here's a list of fiction and non-fiction books (for ages 4-16) to get you started. Let us know if we've missed your favorite book and we'll add it!
  • Rather than focusing on text, this lesson addresses Chris Van Allsburg's use of light and shadow to tell a dystopian fairy tale... but it was surely just a dream. This is a great art appreciation lesson.
  • Reviews Phoebe Gilman's retelling of this Jewish folktale, with questions tying the story moral to the three Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle.
  • Open-ended comprehension questions and prompts to go with Dick Gackenbach's tale of three trees: one used for material, one a Christmas tree, and one left in the forest. A great Earth Day tie-in.
  • Imagine yourself in the Truffula forest... Wonder what the Once-ler thinks of all his money... Finish verses with your own Seussian nonsense names... Enjoy the Lorax word find. You'll find these activities and more in this accompaniment to Dr. Seuss's cautionary classic, "The Lorax"!
