Indian Lake fifth grade students in Advanced Language Arts are delving into an intense character study. They read several Dr. Seuss books and then chose a character to describe. The students had to use evidence from the story to prove why their descriptions were accurate. Finally, they colored hats, like the one the cat wore, to display their projects. Teacher Cammie Honaker explains this exercise is a kick-off to a more in-depth unit on Dr. Seuss’ writings and his method of using children’s literature to introduce serious social and environmental issues.
