Throughout this week, we are celebrating a great author. In honor of his birthday this week (March 2nd) and for all the wonderful ideas, inspirations and quotes he has taught us over the years. To start off the week, our residents watched the movie The Lorax in the morning and then made a darling clay pot Lorax in which they planted marigolds to look like truffula trees from the movie.
This is a lovely book/ movie about a boy who will do anything to find a truffula tree in order to impress the girl of his dreams. It turns out truffula trees are very hard to find and maybe even extinct due to greed and selfishness caused by one man mainly, but then as a whole later on. The Lorax, a grumpy but adorable creature speaks for the trees and knows how important it is to care for the environment. As it is in real life!
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing’s going to get better, it’s not!” – Dr. Seuss
Making their clay pot Lorax!
Isn’t he cute?
So remember, be mindful of the environment in all ways and never be afraid to do the right thing!
