Here’s one of Grace’s writing samples from last week…she finished up her unit on writing nonfiction paragraphs with an attempt to persuade everyone to recycle. 🙂 And here it is:
Most people don’t really think about what they throw away, which is understandable. It’s not like putting something in a box is complicated or time-consuming. It would be a lot better if more people would start recycling. It’s just as easy as throwing your recyclables away. It’s as simple as putting them in a different box or taking them to a separate dumpster. Also, it can be fun. Recycling isn’t just taking things to a recycling place; you can turn it into a craft! Make a doll out of newspapers or a whale out of a box and bottle caps! But most importantly, a little can go a long way. One box of recyclables is that much less rotting away in a landfill.
