This resource contains two non-fiction texts. One about the history of agriculture and the problems of agriculture is having on the environment. The second passage is about the history and impact of industries on the environment

There is a lesson plan to follow and worksheets to go along with this.

The passages were written with fifth graders in mind, but the information is very interesting and would be useful for upper grades as well.
