Room 4's Kiwi Kids read a text about plastic. They then had to explain if they thought plastic was fantastic.
Here are some of their explanations.
I think plastic is not fantastic because it can hurt our environment. It can hurt our environment because it is not biodegradable it is photo degradable so it will use light to break it down then stay in the soil and pollute it. This can happen by gases burning from sunlight and heat so it can poison the Earth and ruin our environment.
I think plastic is not fantastic because our wildlife get caught in plastic bags and die. This could lead to extinction for the species. Also plastic bags are waterproof so they don’t rot or rust away. This means that one piece of plastic stays for lots of years.
