The Lorax by Dr. Suess is a great book that raises environmental awareness. It keeps its tone simple and fun, yet it makes a very powerful statement. Our Lorax Project is based on this book, and uses it’s simplicity to keep the children engaged while they learn about the environment and how precious it is.
This project utilizes journalling and video, which makes the experience more personal and vibrant for those involved. Learning to respect and protect our environment should begin from an early age so that children realize that it doesn’t take much to start making a difference. Environmental awareness IS self defence.
This project will climax with Earth Day on April 22nd, but will be ongoing because every day should be Earth Day. Our latest Lorax Project details can be found here.
