Joanne and Birgit from the Global Citizenship team have been busy coming up with some ideas to try and help you keep learning about what it means to be a Global Citizen while you are learning from home and have some fun at the same time.

We decided that reading a book is always a good idea and thought it would be nice to set up our very own Green-Schools book club and we hope you will join us! We have created a week-long series of fun activities in relation to the book and we hope you will also be learning something new about the Global Goals. Throughout this week there will be story times and lots and lots of activities that will help you explore the Global Goals.

This week we ask you to read or listen to the story of the Lorax (or if you have the book at home you can also read it yourself), and then you can complete the activity sheet where you can write and draw your favourite character.


Activity – Persuasive Writing… If I was the Lorax I would…

You can read or listen to the story again and then we are going to ask you to put yourself into the Lorax’s shoes and tell us what would you have said to try and persuade the Oncler to stop cutting down the Truffula trees? Do you think the Lorax could have been more persuasive? Click the image activity sheet to download or print a copy.

Arts and crafts time! Let your imagination go wild, we look forward to seeing your art work! Watch the step-by-step guide on how to create your own Truffula trees in the video below.
