The invention of plastic revolutionized the world in so many positive ways, but at what cost? The negative effects of plastic on the natural world have become increasingly obvious as the oceans and its creatures struggle with plastic waste. The Story of Plastic introduces students to both the pros and the cons of this material and invites students to consider how they can help to reduce the impact of plastic on the environment. The book can also be used to teach students how to discern the author's point of view and to effectively summarize.
