Save the Planet!

enero 17, 2008

Just where do you start when you want “to save the planet”? An in which areas should you focus most of your efforts? Luckily, students in Pay Arias High School seem to be concerned and worried about environmental issues.

One of the greatest environmental problems is the careless and unnnecesary waste of water. We need to make our friends and family aware of the water shortage. Many famous pople are also investing their money and time on it. A good example is Leonardo DiCaprio and his ecosite.

His video WATER PLANET provides us a lot of information about water cycle.

1st Task  Watch and listen the video. Try to deduce the meaning  of the words that appear in it from context.

2nd Task  Listen again but reading the transcript made by Isabel Pérez by clicking on this link .Circle the words you don´t know and ask your teacher or the language assistant.

3rd Task    Work in pairs. Answer the following questions:

1.- How does water suppot life?

2.- Which are the main threats to water ?

3.- How has  Global Warming influenced water cycle?

4.- What are the main consequences of this situation?

5.- What can we do?

6.- What can governments do?

Jingle Bell Rock (Lyrics)

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in jingle bell square
In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it’s the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That’s the jingle bell rock.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun


Now the jingle hop has begun.
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in jingle bell square
In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it’s the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That’s the jingle bell,
That’s the jingle bell,
That’s the jingle bell rock.


Welcome!
