Dr. Seuss

First Grade                                    
March 2nd celebrates Dr. Seuss with Read Across America Day!


Many people do not realize that Dr. Seuss created many paintings- not just the ones he designed specifically for illustrations in his books. Some of the most enjoyable works I love to show my students are the fabulous sculptures he made from old animal parts (saved by the Massachusetts zoo.)


During this unit, we dive into his wonderful book, McElligot's Pool and create model magic sculptures of fish on wood blocks which share his fun, imaginative style.
