The New Ecosystem Of Garbage
This original piece is perfect for providing an introductory crash-course in the complex relationship between human beings, and their environments. For this reason, the piece is an excellent bridge for a lesson on environmentalism. It is also a thoughtful piece that will force students to take a less human-centered approach to their worlds. In addition, this piece exposes readers to key biology and ecology related terminology which includes ecosystem, photosynthesis, and food web.
