Unit 3 Environment and Greener Living
Lesson 10. What is Our Environment Like?
1. Work in groups. Carry out a local environment study of one of the following areas:
• your own home area (your street, for example);
• your school grounds;
• the area around your school.
a) To assess the quality of the environment use the suggested Environmental Record Sheet on p. 86. Copy it into your exercise book and complete it. Add sketches and short written descriptions wherever you can. (If you are studying your home area, choose the place which is quite typical.)
b) Having completed your study, write a short report, including the following:
1. A brief description of the area that you studied.
2. How you conducted your study.
3. Any problems that you came across.
4. The results of your study (include a copy of your Environmental Record Sheet and any sketches that you made).
5. A brief description of your results.
6. Suggestions for ways of improving the environment that you studied.
2. Copy the Environmental Record Sheet on a separate sheet of paper. Use it while doing the project. Make your observations and give a value of between 5 and 0 (where 5 is excellent and 0 is poor) to every item in the chart. Add all your values, write down the descriptions and the total score at the end of the sheet.
