2. Planning your letter

Task 2 is to plan a persuasive letter, trying to persuade people to reduce, reuse and recycle plastics and explaining why they should be doing this. 


A plan does not have to be in full sentences - use bullet points and notes! To help you, look back at the plastic facts you found out during Task 1 when you were watching the videos.


Look at the ‘paragraph headings’ on the PDF document below – these help us to organise our notes. Your task is to organise your notes into suitable sections. You can do this on the sheet (if you have a printer) or on a piece of paper.


For example:

Introduction - explain why you are writing the letter

  • Problem – plastic pollution
  • Animals and wildlife – plastics harmful
  • Oceans – microplastics and rubbish, poisoning environment
