Period 6: Post your answer to these questions:
What did you do to save the world?
What can you do to protect the environment?

Period 8:
Read the introduction and write 3 body paragraphs of an essay explaining how we can use natural resources more responsibly.

Every year on April the 22nd, the world celebrates the Earth Day. In our school, many students and teachers wear green to show that they care about our planet. It all looks good on the surface. But we seldom act responsibly. People use natural resources without thinking about consequences. We need more than words and symbols.

  3. EARTH DAY!!!!!
    Every year on April the 22nd, the world celebrates the Earth Day. In our school, many students and teachers wear green to show that they care about our planet. It all looks good on the surface. But we seldom act responsibly. People use natural resources without thinking about consequences. We need more than words and symbols.
    We can use natural resources more responsibly by trying to take care of our water, because water is an important resource in this world; in order to do this we can take quicker showers, every time that we use a faucet we’ve to make sure that we close the faucet when we finish with it, also we can try to wash our cars with less water and don’t use a hose to wash it ,because that way you are spending a lot of water.
    Another way to take care of our detrimental actions is to try to be more conscious with our earth; we can recycle different kind of stuff like paper and plastic; every time that you go to buy groceries you can bring your groceries in recycling bags, this way you are saving the planet a big problem. An option that you can apply is to plant plants in your house garden, so your plants can produce clean air for our atmosphere.
    Think about your future, wait a minute think about our children future, we’ve to worried about it, because if we don’t take care of our earth nobody else is going to do it. Maybe you can think” But I would not make the difference”, that’s a huge mistake, because if every single person in the world do a little thing for our environment we can do a big difference and have a beauty and pleasant place to live and not just for us though, also for our future generations.

  4. Today is the “EARTH DAY”
    People would to contribute to save the world by planting more trees, recycling, parents should teach their children how to save the world because their children will grow up and they will put their little part to save the world,. If you don’t put your part to save the world, the world will get destroyed by a lot of people that doesn’t care about the environment, people should throw the trash in the trash can.
