Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is a Dr. Seuss story about the journey of life. In this module, students will explore the theme of perseverance with both fictional and real-life characters, identifying strategies they can keep in their pocket as they travel the road of life. They will learn that sometimes, the journey might require courage and risk taking whether the journey is on land, by sea, or in the air.
