Connecting to Chief Seattle

For the assignment, we will think about the environmental issues covered in the readings and combine these to Chief Seattle’s quote regarding the concept that “all things are connected”.

First, you will create a piece of art or a useful object from recycled materials. You must use more than one recycled material; use as many as possible.

Second, review Lesson One’s content on how to form paragraphs and write 2 paragraphs of at least 5 sentences each. Paragraph one will explain the specific art or useful object and also include the recycled materials it is made from. Paragraph two will explain the connection to Chief Seattle’s quote above (include the quote) and why this is important to you personally. Each paragraph should have the topic sentence as the first sentence.

When you submit the assignment, include a clear picture of the art or useful object and then your 2 paragraphs in one Microsoft Word document.
