Second graders discussed Yertle the Turtle by Dr. Seuss to determine character traits of the two main characters. Here are some captures of their thinking:
- Yertle is selfish and mean. He is just looking out for himself and doesn't care about the other turtles at all.
- Mack is brave. He teaches us that one turtle or person can make a difference when things are really bad.
- Seuss used blue for the turtles shells and green for the water.
