Lesson 1: My Environment


Animal Classification Game - posted from Baltimore, MD

Online Game - posted from Baltimore, MD

Smithsonian Habitat Game

ASL signs - posted from West Jordan, UT

We used the ASL signs for food, drink, and house when we sang the song at the end of the lesson. All three are pretty easy to learn and can be found on Google.

Extra Literature - posted from Farmington, UT

Instead of doing one lesson each day we spend a week or so on each lesson and add a lot of extra reading as our daughter LOVES to read! Here is a list of the extra books we used to explore lesson 1.

The Lorax, older version - posted from Knoxville, TN

there is an older movie version of The Lorax from 1972 that is truer to the book's message without the commercialism of the newer version. And, it is less than 30 minutes long. You can find it on You Tube for free.

Fun Seussian Supplement - posted from FPO, AP

When discussing the habitats and what makes a healthy environment, reading the book or watching the new Lorax movie for family movie night backs up the concepts. After the Once-ler cuts down all the truffula trees, the habitat can no longer support the animals.
