The Jamerson YMCA READS! students celebrated Earth day by reading “The Lorax” and discussing questions regarding story elements and vocabulary. They completed an experiment called “Freddie the Fish” where they read cards that described a fish swimming down river and encountering pollutants. The students dumped different pollutants into their bowls to observe the effects on the water and on Freddie. The students then wrote about how Freddie must have felt and what happened to Freddie when he encountered the pollutants.
