Environment!!

Posted: January 19, 2013 in Uncategorized

Hello, everyone!!

This is 5th grade. We all hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Year!!!

During this term we are working on a new project: El Motor del Mundo. Our first lessons are about our Environment. We have just started, but we have found some quotations about the topic. We would like you to read and think a little bit about them. They are quite pessimistic, but we are going to change that! Walt Disney Company has something to tell us:

“Landscapes of great wonder and beauty lie under our feet and all around us. They are discovered in tunnels in the ground, the heart of flowers, the hollows of trees, fresh-water ponds, seaweed jungles between tides, and even drops of water. Life in these hidden worlds is more startling in reality than anything we can imagine. How could this earth of ours, which is only a speck in the heavens, have so much variety of life, so many curious and exciting creatures?” 
― Walt Disney Company

 

During the following weeks, we’ll show our work. Don’t forget reading the quotes!!!! 

 

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.” (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi)

“What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.” (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi)

 

“Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain,
For strip-mined mountain’s majesty above the asphalt plain.
America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,
And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.” 
(
George Carlin)


“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children” (Chief Seattle)

 

“I am glad I will not be young in a future without wilderness.” (Aldo Leopold)
