THE EARTH

The Earth is our planet. It is round and it looks blue from space. The Earth has everything that living beings need: air, water, and heat and light from the Sun. On our planet there is water, land and air. · Some animals and plants live in water. · Many animals, plants and human beings live on land. · Some animals, like birds, can fly thanks to the air.

PARTS OF THE EARTH

We can name three parts of the Earth: · The Atmosphere: the atmosphere is the air that we breathe. It is the gaseous part of the Earth. The atmosphere is composed of nitrogen, oxygen and other gases. Living beings need oxygen to breathe and live. The Hydrosphere:the hydrosphere refers to all of the water on our planet, it is the liquid part of the earth. Most water comes from oceans and seas and the rest is in lakes and rivers. · The Geosphere: the geosphere is the solid part of the earth that is composed of rocks and metals. In the geosphere there are three layers: the Earth’s crust, mantle and nucleus.

MOVEMENTS OF THE EARTH

The  Earth   moves!!  

There are two important movements that affect The Earth. · Rotation: the Earth moves around an imaginary line that it is called an axis. The Earth takes 24 hours a day to complete one rotation. This movement causes day and night. In the part of the Earth facing the Sun it is day-time and the other side, it is night-time. · Revolution: the Earth also moves around the Sun, this movement is called revolution. The Earth takes 365 days, or a year, to make one revolution.

THE EARTH: IMPORTANT FACTS

● The sun is the Earth’s source of light and heat. ● The Earth revolves around the Sun. One revolution takes 365 ¼ days, or one year ● The North Pole always points the same way as the Earth revolves around the Sun. ● The Earth’s revolution around the sun causes the seasons. ● The Earth rotates; it takes 24 hours to complete a turn. ● Rotation produces the succession of day and night, as well as the time difference in different parts of the world.

Don’t buy plastic water bottles. Get a special bottle that you can refill everyday. Plant a tree. Turn off the water when you brush your teeth. Donate things to charity. Buy things in large quantities so there is less packaging. Put them into smaller recycled plastic containers by yourself. Use both sides of a piece of paper for printing and writing. Turn off the lights when you are not in a room. Separate your garbage and recycle. Other: ____________________________________________

ACTIVITIES

Recycling means taking materials from products you have finished using and making new products with them. Making new things from recycled ones takes less money, less energy, and less of the Earth’s resources. Because less energy is used, factories don’t pollute as much. But what can we recycle?

Material AICLE. 4º de Primaria: The

Earth and our Solar System

23

Paper, newspapers, magazines, cards, forms, blank papers, cartons, torn pieces of paper, paper towels, cardboard, egg cartons, photocopies, envelopes and boxes in general. Plastic cups, vessels, soft drink bottles, milk cartons, shampoo and detergent bottles… Glass cups, bottles, pots, glasses... Metal plates, aluminium cans, pots, wire, nails, scrap iron and copper. There are four coloured containers specially made for recycling. The blue container is for things made of paper, the green container is for things made of glass and the yellow container is for things made of glass and aluminium. The grey container is for “organic” garbage. Keeping our planet clean and safe is everyone’s duty. If you make a habit of reducing, reusing and recycling, you can make the world a better place. So, go for it! Protect our planet today and everyday.

 

Answer:

What does recycling mean? What are the advantages of recycling? What types of papers can we recycle? What are the four types of containers? What is the blue container for? And the green one? What can we do apart from recycling to make the world a better place?
