PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 57 minute film about the giant garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean was oustanding. Available on NETFLIX this documentary explores the giant floating patch of garbage and how it affects albatross populations and other wildlife on the Midway Island atoll. Journalist Angela Sun travels to Midway to explore the situation and its hazards to wildlife and also touches on how BPA's find their way from plastics to the ocean into our food. She also covers health hazards of BPA's from packaging and from contact with thermal paper receipts. This film was EXCELLENT for stimulating student outrage/passions and would be suitable for any level environmental science class from middle school through high school. Movie guide contains 27 questions in chronological order with opportunities for students to self reflect, think pair share and respond to what they see in the film. I would divide the film into two days and then provide opportunities for students to process the film. Also included in the download are 20 suggestions for change students could implement in their school, home or community. Film is available on NETFLIX, Google Play and Itunes or can be purchased at http://plasticparadisemovie.com/
