We are celebrating Dr. Seuss this month. In addition to reading many of his books, 1st graders are learning about Dr. Seuss by reading Scholastic News and several PDFs that I uploaded to Actively Learn. They also spent some time playing on the seussville.com website.
Pairs took notes on different aspects on Dr. Seuss' life as they read and then created an oral report. I asked them to learn about his real name, his childhood, things he liked, and his life as a writer/his books. From their notes they created a presentation using Educreations. They searched Flickr for creative commons photos to include.
