Waste Not, Want Not

They prepare public information campaigns to raise awareness about water conservation in their community. Use this lesson plan to address how an author of informational text addresses opposing viewpoints.

Lesson Planet was a great help to me during my student teaching. The site allowed me to find the lessons and support materials necessary for me to create lesson plans.
