Pollution is still a big problem for Mother Earth. Since the world is a large place, a single person cannot magically make pollution a thing only of the past. However, contributing even just a little bit will help. Public service announcements, commercials, or posters can serve as educators and reminders for us all.
For this activity, have students create a storyboard for a commercial with dialogue or voice-over, a single-cell poster with a call to action, or a series of images with a powerful narrative. As you can see, our poster example does not use words, but conveys a powerful message and could be used as an excellent persuasive writing activity.
See our article on writing public service announcements for some more ideas!
