Description of the movie:
“Twelve-year-old Ted lives in a place virtually devoid of nature; no flowers or trees grow in the town of Thneedville. Ted would very much like to win the heart of Audrey, the girl of his dreams, but to do this, he must find that which she most desires: a Truffula tree. To get it, Ted delves into the story of the Lorax, once the gruff guardian of the forest, and the Once-ler, who let greed overtake his respect for nature.”
Why are we showing The Lorax?
The Lorax says that unless someone cares about a situation, nothing will improve. The Once-ler didn’t care about harming the land, birds, water, and animals while cutting down the Truffula trees. And as a result, he cut them all down and destroyed the environment. This lesson applies to the Florida springs in real life! We must all care about spring health and learn how we can do better with our springs. To help the kids understand the environmental themes, there will be an optional worksheet that can be filled out during or after the movie.
