Description

Class Experience

In this class students will explain how plastic and other types of trash end up in the ocean, describe how plastic pollution is harmful to sea turtles and other marine life, and generate ideas for how people can take action to help promote changes that alleviate these problems. 
I based this lesson of a lesson that I have taught in public schools before and has proven to be really successful with the students. This content is derived from a Sea Turtles Resource Guide taken directly from the World Wild Life website resources page. 
If students want, they can submerge their jellyfish in a body of water and see what it would look like in the ocean for a sea turtle in search of food. This could be done in a pool, bathtub, large glass bowl, etc. and is completely optional. 
Each learner should have already gathered an assortment of cleaned off and ready to reuse plastic items from their home. (This can include items like grocery bags, 6-pack rings, fruit cups, bottles, bottle caps, straws, leftover plastic packaging, broken toys, etc.) They will also need scissors, glue or tape, coloring supplies of any kind, and rubber bands or string/thread.
Due to the discussion based nature of the class, assessment will be done throughout and the amount of support given by me will be adjusted accordingly. Based on student input in the initial discussion, I will be able to appropriately adjust how much of the lesson is led by the students or led by me. 
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
