How can we care for our Earth?


This term our Inquiry question was ‘Why should we care for our Earth?’. The students in Year 2/3D have been investigating how they can make a difference. Each student has made their own pledge to the Earth.

Our world is precious and we need to look after it. We can all choose to make a difference and look after our Earth. What do you pledge to do to look after our Earth?

    Hello 2/3D,

    A pledge is a solemn vow to do something. I think all of your pledges show how much
    you care about the world we live in. I know of a Grade 3 class in Calgary, Canada
    who have spent quite a large amount of time this year trying to make this world a
    better place. Unfortunately, they are about to finish their school year as they
    finish mid-year but I can share a post from them.

    One of their major projects involved helping raise funds to build a library in the
    small town of Q’enqo in Peru. They had interaction with aid workers in the area. I
    found their posts fascinating.

    More in line with your pledges, they also took in a Mayoral Challenge to help keep
    their environment cleaner. Below is a link to an environmental activity they carried
    out in their school in Calgary, Canada…

    We only have one world in which to live so we must look after it. You may have seen
    the recent movie, Dr Seuss’s “The Lorax”. It contains one of my favourite quotes…

    “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
    Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

    The words are very wise. We have to care about the environment or nothing is going
    to get better. 🙂

    Your pledges have made me think very seriously of ways I can help to save this wonderful planet we live on.
    I will try to use power and water carefully and recycle everything I can.
    I will also try to learn more about sustainability and how I can play my part in caring for our world.

    Hi 2/3D
    I have just looked at some of the work you have done on planets and your pledges on saving the earth. I am so impressed with the work and efforts from you. Keep up the great work and every little bit of help to save our planet earth will help us all…..we all need to work together.
    P.S I hope you make your 600 visitors tomorrow!!
