The Third Grade Unit Plan is titled, Ocean Plastic - The Problem and the Solution.  In this unit, students will learn that our oceans are changing, and it is predicted that by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Students learn about the physical changes of increased plastic pollution into the ocean and how that is affecting ocean life. Students learn about and come up with several solutions to mitigate the problem. 

The unit plan contains five detailed lesson plans. The unit plan includes videos related to the unit's topic, student worksheets, a final project, and a teacher resources section. A PowerPoint that goes along with this unit plan has also been included.

Each of the Sustainability for Young Learners Courses allows students to come up with sustainability and climate-related solutions that they can implement into their own life.
