Ecological problems in our country
The aims of our lesson are:To brush up the words connected with the theme To discuss the topics which are the part of our theme To find out how other people protect the environment and wildlife To understand how important it is for us to save the Earth To think of the ways you can protect the environment
Thick and thin questions: Do you believe that our environment is in danger? Do you agree that our nature is dangerously polluted? Do you agree that because of land, air, and water pollution our plants and animals are dying? Why do you think our environment is polluted? What happens in our country? What ecological problems are the most important for you? Why? Do you find that pollution is a very serious problem nowadays? Why can’t fish live in rivers? Why are the birds, animals and the wildlife in danger? Do you think our planet needs protection? What is the current situation with the forests?
Many animals are disappearing nowadays. People cut down trees and many animals lose their homes.
Plants and factories send smoke into the atmosphere. The results are changing of climate and global warming.
We have a problem with dirty air too. People can’t breathe in big cities because the air isn't fresh.
Water is very important for us and without drinkable water we’ll die. Different plants make water dirty. People can’t drink this water and animals die in this water.
People leave rubbish at the seaside too. It is also very bad.
The result is very sad.
