Save Our Trees

Oleg Are you coming to the demo on Saturday?

Ivan What demo?

Oleg Don’t you ever read anything, Ivan? Look at this leaflet. Olya wrote it, you know.

Ivan ‘Save Our Trees. Last week permission was given for the Wood Company to cut down the old trees at the end of Green Street. The land is needed for new offices and flats. Those trees are nearly two hundred years old. They were planted in the time of Olexa Dovbush. Unless we do something, they will be cut down next week and three hundred years of history will be destroyed. Letters have been written to the local council and a petition has been organized. A demonstration will be held at the trees on Saturday at 9.30 a.m. Please come along and support us. Save Our Trees’. Are you going?

Students’ projects

A group 1 – the picture of the land

A group 2 – the picture of the waterfall

A group 3 – the picture of the sea

A group 4 – the picture of the bird

‘Save our land’

The land has a great role in our life. Many people want to see its beauty and grandeur. But a lot of tourists visit different places and make a mess everywhere. We want to put some cameras to look for visitors in popular

rest-places. We want to ban visits so-called “black archaeologists”. The nature can’t fight with our pollution if we don’t want to help, that’s why we must save our land for our descendants.

‘Save our waterfall’

Our waterfall is very beautiful. It is one of the famous places in the Carpathian Mountains. Many tourists come to see this wonderful place. Bad people pollute it. We organized scavenging several times but waste is in different places not only in the dust-heaps. Save the territory of the waterfall! Our nature must be clean and beautiful! Support us. A demonstration will be on Friday at 10 a.m. at our local council.

‘Save our sea’

Our sea is needed to help. There are many animals and fishes in it. The people have a rest on its beaches. But there are two problems: visitors and factories. There is a factory not far from the coast that pollutes the nature. Some businessmen want to build new factories here. We have to order to stop them. Save our sea from garbage. Don’t allow anybody to make dirty our territory!

‘Save our birds’

Some birds and animals are in danger because people make dirty their places of living, cut down the trees and destroy their houses. Our air isn’t clean and that’s why a lot of birds die. We want to ask all people of the world to protect our little brothers. They must be free not only in the National Parks but everywhere. Some birds, like eagles, have a right to fly in the blue sky and be not afraid of hunters. Support our movement, please!

III Summing-up

T: Now there are only two big groups in the class. You have to prove that people are

the friends of the nature                                                             the enemies of the nature

E.g. we plant trees                                                                       we cut the trees

       we look after homeless animals                                         we pollute the air

       we                                                                                       we

T: I hope that we solved some serious problems and you – our builders of future life – will become thoughtful about the relations between people and nature. I hope that you understand that the problem of pollution hasn’t any borders and we have to protect nature in all the countries, in the whole world.

Our lesson is coming to its finish and I want to thank everybody who took part in our work. Our work was great and we’ll continue it in our next lessons. Your home-task is to do the projects on ecology.
