Lesson PlanIn Vickie Leaf's lesson "Cat in the Hat," students explore the book by Dr. Seuss and then design a pattern for the Cat's hat. They create their designs with candy and frosting, using kinesthetic skills to enhance learning. This lesson is the first of twelve Dr. Seuss Lesson Plans that combine the author's books with subjects other than language arts, especially art!
Students will be informally evaluated on their completion of the LifeSaver hats, the pattern created by the LifeSaver candies, and the expression of the pattern in another art form.
