Lorax-Themed STEAM Activities
At New Horizon Academy, our teachers prepare purposeful experiences in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics for your child to investigate. Below are some fun Lorax-themed STEAM activities for you to try with your child at home.
Lorax Dice Game for pre-kindergarten
- Lorax template and game sheet
- Orange, yellow, and white paper
Use the colored paper and cut out Lorax body parts. Use the marker to draw eyes. Take turns rolling the die to determine which body part to add as referenced on the Game Sheet. Continue until someone has a complete Lorax.
This is great for fine motor skills and for learning numbers and body parts.
Lorax Trees for toddlers
- Contact paper
- Paper straws
Using the tape, hang up a sheet of contact paper. Stick the straws to the contact paper. Then, add various colored pom-poms to the tops of the straws to form the Lorax trees.
This is great for counting, color recognition, and sensory.
Lorax Stacking Game for pre-kindergarten
- Blocks, clay, LEGOS, or other stackable items
Stack and balance! See how tall you can make the trees with the pom-pom on top before they topple.
This is great for fine motor skills, counting, and making patterns.
