We are the Purchase kids and we Speak for
the Trees!

Theodor Geisel, otherwise known as the magnificent Dr. Suess, was born on March 2, 1904. His funny ideas and his inspiring words helped Ms. Palefsky think of making the softest trees in Dr. Suess' mind. We used a few materials that are:
- Pipe cleaners from Ms. Hinteremeister
- Cotton from Ms. Gonzales 
- Modelling clay
- paint or chalk or marker
- feathers
We either used paint, chalk pastels, or marker on the cotton to make the vibrant colors of the truffula tree's fluff. We used the clay to make a base so our trees could stand. Then we used the pipe cleaners as the body of the trees. After we stuck the fluff on the pipe cleaners and the pipe cleaners in the clay base, our trees were born! We now we keep the truffulas as a reminder of Dr. Suess, the famous story of The Lorax, and the words that story left: "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."
