The fish in the sea are dying
From the pollution we create
We’ve got to stop polluting
Before it’s too late
Before it’s too late.
Our planet is in trouble
It gets worse every day
We have to help our planet
In every possible way.
In the woods and forests
They’re cutting down the trees
We’ve got to save the forests
Everyone agrees
Everyone agrees.
The hole in the ozone layer
Is getting bigger every day
We’ve got to stop air pollution
We have to find a way
We have to find a way.

Во время песни учащиеся подходят к рисунку Земного шара и прикрепляют к нему (скотчем или английскими булавками) небольшие красочные изображения редких птиц, животных, цветов, бабочек из “Красной книги”.
