Lessons from The Lorax: Using Graphs to Study Change
Author(s): Rob Quaden, & Alan Ticotsky Subject: Cross-Curricular
  In this lesson, students read The Lorax and draw graphs to illustrate the changes that happen over the course of the story. Using simply stated questions, readers grapple with the complex themes in the book and movie. Students will investigate how cycles compete for dominance, and think about how the needs of business and natural resources can collide.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect, Short and Long Term Conflicts. Short-term focus on making money results in depletion of resource and environmental degradation over time and the collapse of the business. Actions and consequences are separated by time.

Learning to Connect the Dots: Developing Children's Systems Literacy
Author(s): Linda Booth Sweeney Subject: Why K12 SD
  In this article, educator Linda Booth Sweeney points out that thinking about systems means paying attention to the interrelationships, patterns, and dynamics that surround us, and that children are naturally attuned to this.
 
Learning to Connect the Dots: Developing Children's Systems Literacy
Author(s): Linda Booth Sweeney Subject: Why K12 SD
  How can can adults nurture children's capacity to "connect the dots" through everyday conversations and activities? How can educators build an environment that leads children to see the patterns that make a difference? In this article, educator and writer Linda Booth Sweeney points out that thinking about systems means paying attention to the interrelationships, patterns, and dynamics that surround us - and that children are naturally attuned to this. In cultivating systems literacy, you build upon this natural understanding to help promote this integrated way of thinking for the children in your life.
