Description

Help students learn about the pacific garbage patch using Twitter! This science worksheet printable or Google format has them learn more about the great pacific garbage patch clean-up.

You're strolling on the beach and suddenly stumble into a clutter of plastic garbage.

You look out into the beautiful horizon of your oceanfront hotel and notice a large floating mass, to a moment later realize you're staring at an island of plastic garbage! These are not the sights you hope to see while on an ocean vacation, but more and more these images are becoming the reality of our coastlines and oceans.

Use this activity guide to direct students to the current Twitter feed regarding The Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

The guide has them read through the feed and examine it for different perspectives, and information and also requires them to consider what comments they could make to further the conversation.

They don't need Twitter accounts to do this activity. I provide the Twitter research link directly on the student guide and list the topic they are to search at the top as well.

Twitter keeps us up to date on the current status of things in the world and this lesson is meant to show students how to use Twitter in an academic way. It is also a chance for them to learn that situations in the world are ever-changing.

You can use this as a sub plan, homework assignment or as classwork.
