As a kid I loved Dr. Seuss and as an adult I still love Dr. Seuss. Today, via Wesley Fryer's blog, I discovered a wiki about Dr. Seuss lesson plans. The wiki was just started a couple of weeks ago, but already has some great ideas included in it.

Here is a short list of some additional Dr. Seuss Lesson plan ideas.
1. Dr. Seuss "at hat."
2. The Cat in The Hat - manipulative lessons.
3. The Lorax - economics lesson.
4. One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish - phonics lesson.
