The Plastic ProblemPlants and the Environment
- Amy Acuna
During a study of pirates and ocean animals, the students encountered the death of an animal at sea in a read aloud and they could not stop thinking about it. What happened to the animal? How do sea animals get hurt or sick? Is there any way we can help them? We converted our pirate ship into a Marine Animal Rescue Ship and set sail to investigate the problems plaguing our ocean's animals. When we rescued several sea creatures who had swallowed garbage or had become trapped in trash, we knew we had to do something about it. The ocean is filling up with pollution and we are going to find out the best way to clean it up!
