1. Taking care of our earth is important! We take care of our earth in lots of ways, including taking the time to clean it up. We are going to be cleaning trash from the river, which will help all of the animals and plants around the river. What animals do you know that live near a river? How do you think trash in the river affects them? How does cleaning the trash up affect them?
2. We also take care of our earth by conserving energy and being careful about our waste (trash or pollution). There are lots of simple things we can do as a family, like walking/biking when we can, turning lights off when we leave a room, and always putting trash in the trash can (its not mom or dad's job to do this-- it is YOUR job to take care of this earth!)
3. If lots of families commit to conserving energy, we can make a huge impact! Tell your friends about the things YOU are doing to take care of this earth. Maybe they will start with the little things, too!
