A Plastic Ocean Documentary Worksheet and Answers
This is a question sheet to go along side the documentary: A Plastic Ocean. It is 1hour 40 minutes long and suitable for Key Stages 2, 3, 4 and 5 (the level of detail picked up by the children will just vary). There is 1 mild swear word used at 13minutes 45second in, so you can skip that if needs be. The documentary could be used to start a topic or project. The focus is around how plastic breaks up not down and contaminates the food we eat. It is matter of fact, not too sensationalistic. It also discusses packaging and BPA concepts in terms of what impact it has on our bodies. So it is useful for subjects specifically Geography, then also Science, Philosophy/Morals/Ethics, and there is a part from 1 hour 29 minutes which could be used for Art too. The film is available on Netflix and iTunes. Suggestions on ways to change our habits are included in this.
