Fun Friday- The Lorax

We had Fun Friday activities to go with our field trip to the movie. 


We created a Lorax Game

The child spins the spinner and it lands on a color.  The child then will either say that it is for "my tree" or "_____'s tree".  It makes them interact with their peers and then we have the children say "Here _____" to their peer as they are giving them the pom pom piece.


We made a bingo board that had the pictures from the movie and book.  One board is picture matching and the others we use chips to cover the pictures.

For our art project, we made a Truffula Tree.  We had visual directions and a communication board so the children could choose which color they wanted to make.


This paper (though hard to see) has pencil marks on it to show the children where to put glue and the paper for the Trufulla tree.

    1. Please send me your email address and I can send you a Word file of it. I made it in Boardmaker, but I thought that you might not have that software.

  2. I teach kids with severe disabilities at a Special Education center. The kids voted recently to play the Lorax for the school movie so I am trying to collect some activities that go with the movie. I would love to have a copy of any of your activities. I do have Boardmaker if that makes sharing it easier. Thank you so much.
