This is a companion unit of Speech and Language focused activities to go with One Plastic Bag, by Miranda Paul, the true story of a young girl who grows up to recognize the dangers that plastic bags presented to her village and sets out to fix the problem. This story is told with rich vocabulary, cultural lessons, and gorgeous pictures. The book is not included with this unit, and I have no affiliation with the author.
