7. Speak in class. Express your point of view on the project described in Ex. 6. What do the children learn to do as the result of it?


In this way, the children learn valuable lessons about caring for their environment: they learn that it’s important to recycle resources and at the same time, they learn to care for their environment by picking up litter. Not only does their village look nicer, but they also earn something through this care. Conservation, they see, has many values. The underlying vision of the Swop Shop is to help the children grow into self-sufficient, and contributing adults. The children are encouraged to use what they have around them, so that they should see that in small ways, they can improve their lives.

8. Write about your school environmental project. If you haven’t done any, write a letter to your school Headmaster about the environmental project you’d like to suggest.
