This assignment is designed to be done after teaching students about air pollution in Mexico City, oil pollution in Venezuela, and deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest. Students are to use their knowledge of these topics to do a creative writing assignment where they write from the perspective of a non-living things involved in the problem (ie. car in Mexico City, oil in Venezuela, or tree in the rainforest). This lesson can easily overlap with language arts when teaching personification, creative writing, or basic grammar.
*This lesson could easily be modified to fit another scenario with very little editing.
