Last Monday, AHS parenting students taught a Dr. Seuss lesson to their designated class at Andalusia Elementary School. The students taught life lessons from “The Lorax” to “Yertle the Turtle,” and even incorporated a little science by creating Oobleck slime in the 5th grade classes.

Each student demonstrated how to make either a treat or a craft that went along with the Dr. Seuss book they chose. A lot of work went in to preparing for this lesson. The students had to write a rough and final draft lesson plan, created a grocery list of items they would need, baked cupcakes, measured ingredients, created a lesson example, and counted and bagged all items they would need for their class. The high school students now realize how much work it takes to plan for just one lesson, but the smiles on the AES students’ faces made it all worth it!
