How much trash does an average family produce in 24 hours? Where does that trash end up? Get your youngsters thinking about ecology and conservation as they discuss the impact pollution has on the marine environment. After a deep discussion, children are prompted to participate in a school-wide cleanup project. A food chain song is included to help learners consider how pollution affects all living things.
- Song lyrics/handout is included
- A beach cleanup is suggested in the lesson. If you don't live near a beach or shoreline, have the class clean up the school yard instead.
