Summer Fun: Dr. Seuss and Learning About the Environment
Subject Areas:
    Careers/Vocational Education
    Science
Sign up today for this free and fun ICN session that can be offered to kids who visit your library this summer! These sessions offer a great learning opportunity, and early career exploration, for your young community members.

During this session professor David McCullough, Biology Coordinator in Environmental Studies at Wartburg College, will read from the Dr. Seuss book The Lorax. This book had a very powerful message about the dangers of clear cutting and pollution when it was written 40 years ago and the message still stands today.

After a reading, Dr. McCullough will talk to the audience about how the message contained in this book still rings true today and more importantly will tie it to our environment here in the Midwest. Dr. McCullough does a great job telling young kids what they can do at home to help protect the environment. He will also tell the kids what it is like to be a college professor.

Notes:

Sessions are provided at no cost by Iowa Public Television in collaboration with the Iowa Communications Network to PK-12 students and the adults working with or on behalf of PK-12 students in Iowa.
