April is National Poetry Month, along with Environmental Education Week and Earth Day on April 22. The video of the Disneynature movie Earth, the glacier video, and the interactive website links below are meant to get you thinking about Earth Day and all of its inhabitants, as well as ways we can go about respecting our environment and how to preserve it for future generations. We all can be doing something to raise awareness of our changing world and help make it a better and safer place to live.
Your task for this week is to write a poem either on Earth Day or our changing environment. In addition, I would like to know your ideas for ways we can help preserve and conserve the resources of the world we live in. Also, what interesting things did you learn from the websites below?
This is a great interactive game from New Zealand. Let me know how you do!
