William Wordsworth's poem "The World Is Too Much With Us" has a message that easily applies to the life of your students. Use this colorful slide show to guide your students through an analysis of the poem and to help them reflect on the footprint they are leaving on the earth. The lesson ends with a reflection and a writing assignment for the students.
This was originally posted as an earth day assignment, but has been altered to be used at any time during the year. If you purchased my earth day product, this is very similar.
