If you would like to duplicate this activity we will need:
Plates, plastic cups, and spoons
and colored icing
We discussed how the trees were different colors and how Dr. Seuss uses his imagination when creating his images. We then went to town decorating our trees.
If you place a big glob of icing on the plates, the cones don't move around and it makes it easier to decorate.
I give each of my students their own plastic cup with a few spoonfuls of icing. This makes for happy students and a happy teacher!
After we had enjoyed our decorating and eating, we cleaned up and then got to work writing a sequence of events piece detailing how we made our trees. The students really enjoyed this writing activity and wrote using such descriptive sentences!
