Bye Bye Plastic Bags

The “Book of the Month”, One Plastic Bag, by Miranda Paul is about a girl who saw a plastic bag and then she decided to reuse it. She kept on seeing plastic bags, which really bothered her! Now she has a group that helps her make jewelry out of plastic bags. When she repurposed the plastic bags, that made the original problem stop.


We then watched a TED Talk about two girls who are sisters and they also wanted to stop plastic bags getting used in Bali. The mayor agreed to get all the plastic bags banned from being used by 2018; but…it was done in 2017!! Also the mayor promised there would be no plastic bags. This was an impressive things done by just two young girls!

Because Of Winn Dixie

Here are some similar things that were in the book and the movie. In the book Opal says to Dunlap and Stevie run off you bald headed babies! Here’s another similarity: Otis goes to jail. Another similarity was that Amanda loses her brother Carson. The last similarity is that Carson  drowns when he is 5 years old. 

Here are some differences from the book and the movie. In the book Dunlap vs opal in a race but in the movie Dunlap vs Stevie. In the book Gloria Dump is nice but in the movie Gloria Dump is more what Stevie and Dunlap say a “witch”. Dunlap is nicer in the movie then the book.
