Activity Overview


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. Public service announcements, commercials, or posters can serve as educators and reminders for us all.

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. The example does not use words, but this could be an excellent persuasive writing activity.

See our article on writing public service announcements for some more ideas!
