That song lyrics comes to mind when I see this picture: “…I’m a hazard to myself. Don’t let me get me. I’m my own worst enemy…”
They say that a picture is worth 1,000 words, so at the end of our Ecology Unit, instead of talking about how we’re destroying our planet, I had my students go to this site and see for themselves a couple of the shocking ways that we’re demolishing the earth bit by bit, like the one below. Scary.
On the bright side though, this did lead to a very in-depth discussion on what the actual problems are and how we can go about fixing them.
