For the next two and a half weeks Fifth grade thru Eighth grade are learning all about garbage. In science class we are making presentations of the garbage in our water, we are in two groups, the Ocean group and the Great Lakes group. Here is a fact about micro-plastics: that it is extremely difficult to pick them up without harming the plankton because the look almost the same. also 22 MILLION pounds of plastic end up in the. Great Lakes every year. In 2050 in the ocean there is going to be more trash by weight in the ocean then animals. Its super sad.
Is there a better place to put our trash instead of the ocean?
In 2050 how many animals will be extinct in the ocean from now?
What is the number one plastic item found in the ocean?
