Dr. Seuss Science Ideas




I just love Dr. Seuss books.  They catch the students attention with fun poems and great pictures.  They can also be used to introduce some great science concepts.  Here are some ways to integrate Dr. Seuss into you science curriculum.  Perfect to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday!

Awesome follow up to Bartholomew and the Oobleck. Do an oobleck science experiment!
Read Bartholomew and the OOBLECK and then create some oobleck.  (That's cornstarch and water.)  Find more ideas here.  http://mrsriccaskindergarten.blogspot.com/2013/03/dr-seuss-week.html

Mrs. Knight's Smartest Artists - great tie in with Dr. Seuss - have done this with kindergarten, but like the Dr. Seuss inspiration and the preprinted little characters.
Add a STEAM Activity.  Students could even be architects and try creating Dr. Seuss themed buildings.
