And I hope this problem concerns each student of our class. You know that people all over the world are worried about our environment and ecological problems have become global nowadays, too. So, it is impor-

tant to increase our knowledge of environmental needs. If we can be active participants in the protection and rebuildment of our environment, we can help our planet Earth to survive and keep it healthy for future ge-

nerations. What is environment? Think it over and give your ideas (nature, land, air, water, people). Brainstorming on the poster. One pupil

is summing up all answers and gives a conclusion.

2. Reciting the poems.

Teacher: Our will and desire is to protect our planet and to make it the safest place to live, and to turn it into a green garden with lots of trees,

bushes, grass and flowers. You must realize that to save nature and to keep the Earth safe, alive and beautiful for future generations is the duty

of mankind, of each person on the planet. And now let us listen to the

pupils who will recite poems that describe the beauty of our wonderful

planet Earth. Pupils recite the poems.

3. Students’ presentations.

Teacher: The most burning ecological problems nowadays are acid rains, water, air, soil pollutions, radioactive contamination, global warming, disappearing of birds and animals, deforestation, the ozone hole, too much garbage on the planet. Now listen to the information prepared by your classmates and be ready to discuss it and work out your ideas how to protect the environment. Pupils present their reports.

days? Give your ideas what we should do to help the environment and

what we should not do to keep our planet clean (Students work in 2 groups. One group generates ideas what we should do and the other group that we should not do. Time is limited up to 5-7 minutes.Then stu-

dents write their ideas on the leaves and pin them to the tree).

Teacher: Today we tried to summarize our knowledge on the topic “En-

Earth. I hope you will remember that “To hurt the Earth is to hurt yourself”. And I believe you will love our nature, our environment and protect it, you will never pollute the environment, the place where you live. But remember, my friends, the most dangerous pollution is the pollution of the soul. Keep your souls clean! Do not pollute them with anger, envy or selfishness. And the world will be a better place to live! Our lesson is over. Thank you for your creative and active work at the lesson.
