DIGITAL PERFORMANCE (Available September 2021 – June 2022)

“Trash Talks with Polly Mermaid” is an engaging video series featuring Polly (a plastic mermaid) and her friend Basurana (a frog puppet made from plastic trash) as they explore sustainable solutions to our current waste systems and single-use plastic. Polly tries to understand the human habit of discarding plastic in her ocean, and sets up a challenge to see whether humans can live with less single- use plastic.  This video series was originally created for 3rd-5th grade, but has been widely appreciated by kids as young as pre-K and up through middle school and beyond.

 

AISD Pricing for 2021/2022: $300 for full school viewing of the video series (featuring 3 ten minute videos plus optional worksheet activities). $50 for one classroom only, or $100 per grade level (up to three grade levels).
