- 1)Attitude to nature
- 2)Sessions of the year – The year four sessions. Spring, Autumn, Summer and winter. The sessions are changing because the earth is orbiting (rotating) around the Sun.
- Spring begins on the 21st March. Many people consider summer and spring the most beautiful seasons of the year. Nature begins to awake from its long winter sleep and now life begins. Night get shorter and days get longer. There is more sunshine and the first flowers appear. The birds such as swallows, starlings or cuckoos come back from the south.
- June 21 is the date when summer begins. Schoolchildren love this season because they have two months holidays ahead. The temperatures rises to 25 degress of Celsius. In summer rain often comes in the form of a storm. It gets dark and cools down and the storm is about to break.
- On the 23rd Septemter autumn comes. It's the time for harrvest. We pick apples, pears, potatoes
- or plumbs. The grass turns yellow and gets dry. We're delighted with the colours of trees. The leaves of maples birches, ashes, beeches and oaks become tinted yellow, orange or brown. Many people go mushrooming. The weather is often awful.
- According to the calendar, winter comes on December 21. Typical winter weather brings snowfall, icy wind and hard frosts. We can go skiing in the mountains. Children enjoy their winter pleasures such as throwing snowballs or building snowmen. The temperatures sometimes drops 20 degress of Celsius below zero. The roads become icy and it makes driving hazardous because you can skid.
- 3)Where we live – We live on the Earth. Earth is the third planet from the Sun and its the one of the eight planets in our Solar system. Sometimes is called as the Blue Planet. In the centre of Solar system is the Sun. The Sun is huge (immence) ball of fire. The planets are orbiting around the Sun. The first planet is Marcury. It takes one year than the Earth once revolve around the Sun. One year is 365 days and leap year has 366 days. The sun shines during the day and the moon shines during the night. The Sun rises in the morning in the East and sets in the West.
- 4)Plants and animals – Summer is time for delicious strawberries, bilberries, raspberries, blackberries and cranberries and the harvest of corn. The animals are abused by people.
- 5)Environmental problems – Civilization has found people many advantages but its products also pollute the environment in which we live. Big problem is cutting down the rain forests in Amazonia.
- Air pollution – is the biggest problem in cities. Emissions range from smoke, dust and smells to car and lorry exhausts. Smoke contains sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide which are produced. All this causes acid rain.
- Greenhouse effect – The earth is warmed up naturally by the atmosphere which traps solar radiation. The ozone layer protects life on the Earth from ultraviolet rays.
- Alternative sources of energy – People should try to use alternative sources such solar, water, wind or geothermal.
- Water pollution – Water pollution results from harmful industrial proccesses – from pesticides and other chemicals used in agriculture. Oil and chemical spills from ships at sea are dealt with by chemical dispersants spread onto it from specially equipped aircraft.
- The law should by stricter on those who break the rule and fines should by introduced for dumping waste.
