Эпиграф урока (на доске). «If you don’t think about the future you will not have it »
Teacher Today we are going to discuss the problems of environmental protection. It is our final lesson on the topic Ecology. The problem of ecology is very important now. We shall exchange our opinions about these global problems, how to protect our Earth, how to prevent further pollution of the atmosphere and what urgent and necessary measures to undertake.
Pupil 1. .Ecology is a science about nature and about relations of man with it. We are really one with nature, our planet and the Universe. Don’t forget. Our Earth is our Home. People must take care of it. Our environment must be clean.
Pupil 2. Unfortunately, our technical civilization thinking only of material goods succeeded in destroying Nature and creating the ecological crisis on our planet. These are the names of the main environmental problems of today: littering, air pollution, water pollution, endangered animals, and destruction of nature resources.
Pupil 3. People’s activity pollutes our environment. It is physical and chemical pollution. We can’t solve this problem without fighting together. Millions of cars and smoky factories pollute and spoil the air we breathe in. Pollution is hanging over big cities like an ugly brown cloud. It is hurting our lungs, the life of animals, birds and plants.
Pupil 4. We live on the Earth. This planet is our home. We want our home to be clean and new. We want to see blue seas and rivers, green trees and fields, clear sky. If you care about the planet, don’t make it dirty. Don’t leave plastic bags, bottles, litter in the streets, parks, forests. Remember that the future is in our hands.
Pupil 5. For a long time, too little attention was paid to the environment. Today the situation is different. People all over the world are worried what is happening to the environment because of modern industry and the need for more energy. Newspapers and magazines write about water, air and soil pollution. Now many parts of the world are overcrowded. People live in big cities and much of the waste, especially waste from factories, electric power stations; the chemical industry is very dangerous. Fish dies in lakes, rivers and seas, trees die too. Much of this dangerous waste goes into the air and is carried by winds for great distances. Animals and plants species are being wiped-out.
Teacher. You know that people all over the world are worried about our environment. Children, do you like our city and our district. Do you want to see our district clean and tidy?
Pupil 5. No doubt, we like our city and our district. They are nice and beautiful.
Teacher. I share your opinion, but there are also some ecological problems in our area too. What do you think?
Pupil 1. There many problems in our region. Rivers are polluted. Flowers are pulled out. Litter is left.
Pupil 2. Water in our rivers is really polluted. Polluted water kills fish and other marine life. People must not be passive observers. They must try to make future life better. Water pollution seems to be one of the main problems in our Kursk region.
Pupil 6. Trees are cut down. Birds and animals are frightened. The air is polluted.
Teacher. I agree with you. All these problems are very serious and important. Look at the map. The pictures on it show some environmental problems. Let’s discuss the problem of air pollution in our district. Who wants to begin?
Pupil 3.The ecological situation in our district for many years has been very dangerous because of the Chernobyl tragedy. It was dangerous to eat some kinds of food because of water, air and soil pollution in our district.
Teacher. Not only adult people are worried about the pollution of nature. Even schoolchildren think about this problem. Let’s listen to your projects.
(Listening to children’s projects)
Pupil 7. What have they done to the world?
What have they done to the seas, my
What have they done to the seas?
What have they done to the rivers, my
What have they done to our land, my
This land which is our from birth.
What have they done to our forests, my
What have they done to the Earth?
What have they done to the skies, my
Skies that are blue and so clear.
What have they done to the skies, my
What have they done to the air?
Pupil 1.The words of the poem impressed me greatly. I am upset because we have just seen on the map many polluted parts of our region. Now I know that buses and cars are sources of pollution too. And noise is a special kind of environmental pollution too.
Teacher. People of the whole world must take urgent measures to protect the environment from further pollution of the land, water and air. We must take care of our planet. The importance of this task is pointed out by ecologists, scientists who study the relations between living things and their environment. Each of us must do everything possible to keep the land, air and water clean.
There lots of ways of keeping our planet clean. What are they? What we should do and what we mustn’t do. Let’s have a talk. Who wants to be first?
Pupil 1. One way is to remember 3 rules: reduce, recycle and reuse.
Teacher. What is reduced, reused and recycled in your family.
Pupil 2. In our family energy is reduced. We all know it is important to recycle things.
Pupil 3. And in our family paper is recycled. Paper comes from trees. If we don’t recycle paper, a lot of trees will be destroyed. Many birds, plants and animals may become extinct.
Pupil 4 And in our family we never buy drinks in plastic bottles. These can’t be recycled and plastic won’t even degrade. If you throw this bottle away, it will litter the Earth forever. Only buy water and other drinks in aluminum cans or glass bottles. Buy milk and juice in cartons. Glass, aluminum and carton can be recycled
Pupil.2. We save water. It is better to water the garden in the coolest part of the day. We do it in the evening.
Pupil 3. And I never cut wild flowers. In England, for example, since the Second World War 22 wild flower species have disappeared forever, 317 are standing on the brink.
Teacher. How children protect nature.
Pupil 4. We plant trees and flowers. We take care of animals. We do not break trees, pick wild flowers in the forest or in the field. We must not throw waste paper or other things into the rivers and lakes.
Teacher. Pollution is a complicated problem. Automobiles are polluting the air but they provide transportation for the people. Factories pollute the air and the water but they provide jobs for people and produce necessary goods. Fertilizers and pesticides are important for growing crops but they can ruin soil.
We must understand that science itself can’t be good or bad. Another thing is how people use its achievements. People must reduce pollution from their own activity
So the problem is to protect life on Earth, to save our planet for people.
Teacher. It’s time to pass Declaration.
The Earth is our home,
I promise to keep it healthy and beautiful,
I will love the land, the air, the water and all living creatures,
United with friends, I will be a defender,
United with friends, I will love the land,
I will save the Earth,
We will save the Earth/
Dear children. Now you know how dangerous the ecological situation on the Earth is. Positive results depend on serious attention of the people of the whole world to the problem. I hope you will be active members of the movement for protecting the environment from further pollution.
We love our country and we must do our best to save it. We will finish our lesson with a poem.
Oh, Russia, I’m in Love with you
Remember, Russia, you are great.
Not in the fields of battles past
But in the green fields full of wheat
And forests, gardens, free of dust.
I love you deeply, leer land,
Your hills and rivers, sand on strand,
Your songs and dancers, lakes and seas,
Your beasts and fish, birds in trees.
Your sunrise in a splendid sight
Which gives me always such delight.
Teacher. The lesson is over. Thank you for your active work and attention.
