World Earth Day | The Lorax | Dr. Seuss

World Earth Day | The Lorax | Dr. Seuss

(1)
This year, World Earth Day (22nd April 2018), is all about telling people to end plastic pollution. The way people make and later get rid of plastic items is bad for the environment. Lots of plastic items are made from petroleum which is believed to contribute towards climate change. Many companies are trying to find ways to make ‘clean’ energy and this will mean that less plastic can be made. When plastic items are thrown away, they cannot be broken down by the bacteria that breaks up most waste. Some plastic items can be recycled but many cannot. These thrown away plastic items end up in land fill sites and even in the ocean. The Lorax is the original eco warrior and his message still rings loud today, in this fable about the dangers of destroying our forests, told in the trademark rhyme of the irrepressible Dr. Seuss. These activities allow children to explore different materials, create an ‘End Plastic Pollution’ poster, create a comic strip, design a reusable shopping bag, storyboard a TV advert plus reading comprehension tasks for upper and lower KS2.
