It's Dr. Seuss time again and in our search for wonderful, Seuss-tastic activities for kinders, we stumbled upon this awesome writing prompt over at Seusstastic Classroom Inspirations, a blog created by the self-proclaimed 'obseussed teachaholic', Melissa Dillard! We love unique activities that foster writing skills and this Lorax-inspired exercise is just the ticket for your Dr. Seuss lesson plans. Part craft, part writing exercise, first invite your kiddos to complete the following prompt...

"If I were the Lorax, this is how I would help our Earth..."

...then, using the *free* Lorax mustache template featured over at Melissa's blog, have a fun photo shoot with your kiddos! These two elements, paired with a marble painted "Earth", make for a super cute finished product!

[NOTE: This is a great spin-off activitiy not only for your Dr. Seuss unit, but also for Earth Day or your recycling unit!]

This activity is only the tip of the iceberg! Melissa offers tons of fantastic ideas and {FREE!} printables at her blog so be sure to visit Seusstastic Classroom Inspirations!
