Write a children’s book on FOOD WASTE
The book must include:
a. At least three characters;
b. A conflict or plot;
c. Reflect the research you did on your issue – You may wish to directly cite and reference the research that i will attach, to explain a concept from the research to your reader, but your book should be teaching and telling the research to the reader. This is the meat of the grade.
d. Teach the reader about the issue without being preachy
e. Be at least 1000 words over 12 pages; and
f. Have at least eight illustrations of your own generation (you draw! – either electronically or by hand and scan) (1000 words + 8 picture illustrations will be 12pages without the work cited page)
g. You may draw on ipads using Adobe Sketch or Draw, or any other drawing app, or you may draw by hand – totally up to you.
h. You will publish it as one document and upload it as a PDF.
i.You may not write about cleaning the beach, or the playground, or the ocean — this is not to be a story about a kid rallying his friends to clean the earth. This plot should tell a story and teach the research.
Must be in MLA 8TH Format, double spaces

JUAN CARLOS RODRIGUEZ
LEYNA AND THE MISSING PLASTIC
The year is 2120 the Earth is no longer inhabitable.
Human beings are now orbiting Earth aboard Air Force Terra,
the first space colony. Long are the days of human beings
frolicking on mother earth. How could this have happened?
For such an advanced species, there indeed had to be an
explanation. Natural disaster, meteor, war? Sure, all of these
happened, but no one expected plastic to be why human
beings left Earth.
Sleeping soundly, the inquisitive dreamer awaits
to be awakened by her best friend. Her name is
Leyna; she is your average girl who is born in space.
However, one thing is exceptional about this girl;
she dreams about Earth every night. She sure has an
enduring love for Mother Earth for a girl who has
never been to Earth. Eve approaches Leyna and, like
an alarm, sounds off, “WAKE UP LEYNA, WAKE
Leyna jumps out of her deep sleep and shouts, “I am up, I am up; why did you have to wake me up?”
Leyna jumps out of bed and heads straight to her window, “would you look at that, Eve? Don’t you ever
wonder when we will return to her?” Eve looks at the pure delight and joy in Leyna’s face and knows
what is coming next. Leyna looks at Eve with a massive smile on her face and says, “Eve, tell me stories
about Earth, please?”
Like clockwork, Eve knew what story Leyna preferred to hear when she woke up and proceeded to
tell her the story of the days when human beings would roam the streets and surfed the waves. Any story
that included hoverboards and surfboards was Leyna’s favorite. And just like clockwork, Leyna would
ask Eve, “Eve, why did humans leave Earth?” Eve, however, was directed just like other humanoids on
the space colonies not to disclose the real reason why human beings left Earth. No child on the space
colony under thirteen knew about the ever-mounting amount of plastic that took over every inch of the
Earth. Plastic, which was once so beneficial for human beings, seemed to be the downfall of their
existence as a living species that inhabited Earth.
With a pensive look on her face, Leyna asked, “Eve, why is it that you won’t tell me why we left
Earth? And why is it that you can’t seem to give me an answer to when we will return?” As directed and
programmed, Eve responded, “Leyna, under rule thirty-nine/ nineteen, I am not allowed to discuss any
details regarding Earth departure.” This answer always made Leyna sad and upset, leading her to guilt
Eve, “Eve, I thought you were my best friend; best friends don’t hide anything from each other.”
Somehow today seemed to be a new day in their friendship; you see, Leyna was soon to turn thirteen. It is
then that Eve said, “Leyna, you soon will turn thirteen and can begin to learn more about your species
past.” Leyna jumped with joy and an uncontrollable grin on her face that seemed to resemble that of the
Cheshire cat’s. Leyna then ran to Eve and hugged them, “Leyna, I think we should look for your mom;
she will be able to provide you with the information you desire.”
With no hesitation, Leyna runs swiftly
through the halls of Air Force Terra One.
Running and dodging other passengers along the
way, Eve followed right behind Leyna, “hurry,
Eve, hurry.” The best friends finally descend
upon the staircase that will lead them to the
answers that Leyna seeks.
Finally, they walk into the lab, and Leyna says,
“mom, I have questions, and I know you have
answers; please tell me I am ready for these
answers.” Leyna’s mom was the premiere scientist
on Air Force Terra One, Dr. Gaia as everyone
knew her. Dr. Gaia turns around and says, “Leyna,
slow down; I knew that this would come, and I
believe that you are ready to hear some new
stories.” Dr. Gaia looks over at her first creation,
Eve, and tells them, “Eve, we are ready to share
our past to Leyna.”
It is then that Dr. Gaia explains to Leyna that plastic is the reason
why human beings had to depart from Mother Earth. Shocked and
confused, Leyna says, “wait, so you’re telling me that man-made
material is the reason man left their home?” Laughing with a slight
tone of confusion, Dr. Gaia says, “well, now that you say it like that,
I guess human beings were not so advanced as they thought they
were.” Dr. Gaia then says, “human beings became obsessed with
cleaning up plastic on beaches that they never once thought about all
the plastic used in agriculture. A great article was written over one
hundred years ago by Lear and team.” Without skipping a beat,
Leyna asks, “mom, for the one million times, when are we going to
return, and how are we going to get rid of this plastic that forced us
to depart?” Dr. Gaia then turns over to her colleague and most
trusted advisor Dandora, “Dandora, do you want to help me out over
here and explain to your favorite niece how we will get rid of the
plastic that drove us out?”
Dandora, the bioluminescent alien with four arms who Leyna has
always called family, walks over with vials in hand. “Well, Leyna, let
me cut to the chase as your species would say.” Dandora had a love for
bacteria, especially bacteria that loved to consume plastic. Dandora
walks over to the diagram and says, “Leyna, here is PET, and here is
the enzyme we plan on using to break up plastic molecules to make it
easier for plastic to disappear from Earth eventually.” Leyna
surprisingly was not confused by the short and direct explanation. Dr.
Gaia explains by saying, “you see, bacteria that was tested out over
one hundred years ago in Japan was observed to produce enzymes that
would break down PET molecules, making it easier for the bacteria to
consume the plastic.” Dandora walks over with bacteria and enzymes
in all four hands and says, “Leyna, we believe that we have produced
an enzyme that will consume plastic at an increasingly faster pace.
This enzyme will possibly make it a reality to return to a plastic-free
Earth in the next two to three years. Would you want to join us in
testing it out in the plastic chamber?” Without hesitation, Leyna said,
“yes, yes, yes!”
The plastic chamber was the test zone that Leyna
knew about but had never been allowed to enter. All
four were now inside, bacteria and enzymes in hand,
ready to experiment, hopeful that this experiment
number 12478 will be the one to solve a problem that
has plagued Earth for over one hundred years. Dr.
Gaia, Dandora, Eve, and Leyna place the enzymes into
the plastic chamber. Leyna then asks, “what do we do
now?” Dr. Gaia then turns to Leyna and says, “now we
wait, and hope that this test is the one that is a
success.” Up to this point in time, no information was
available besides research showcased in the article
titled “Microplastics in the Marine Environment” by
Yang, Chen, and Wang.
They all walk out of the plastic
chamber with high hopes. Twelve
hours later, an alarm goes off in the
lab; this alerts Dr. Gaia and
subsequently wakes Leyna up as
well. Leyna stumbles over to Dr.
Gaia and says, “mom, what is it?
Why are you awake, and why are
you screaming?” Dr. Gaia runs over
to Leyna and picks her up, spinning
her around and around while
saying, “it worked, it worked,
Leyna, we are going back to
