Yertle the Turtle Stack Up in the Library!

To honor Dr. Seuss, this year’s featured reading in Library was Yertle the Turtle as part of a STEAM activity. The students carefully counted, and then stacked up “turtles”; making sure to keep their construction balanced so that King Yertle was able to perch on top of the stack, sometimes only momentarily!

We also discussed one of the morals of this story: leaders need to be kind to the people they lead!
