1. A teacher is greeting all the students students.
2. First talk. The teacher is explaining that students lifestyle has the
influence on the environment and on the depletion of natural resources.
The teacher is saying for example: thousands of years ago there were
huge plants on Earth from which lignite and coal were created. From
other forms oil and gas were created. These fuels are still used by
humans. Thanks to coal many branches of industry are developed. In
many cases electric and thermal energy at our houses, clothes and

medicines are connected to the coal. On the other hand, peoples lives
are mainly influenced by food. It is provided by the Earth and its
organisms. People mine from the Earth its natural resources. We have
water, wood, fish, oxygen from our planet. We give the Earth sewage,
waste, rubbish and exhaust fumes. The results of our actions are for
example the depletion of natural resources, the loss of clean water,
deforestation, the death of many species of plants and animals, more
and more sewages. People must use natural resources but we must do it
3. The play in guards- the work in three groups. The teacher divides
students into 3 groups, students choose colorful pieces of paper: green,
red and yellow. The first group is made from students with red pieces of
paper, the second the yellow pieces of paper, the third- the green
pieces of paper. The teacher is giving commands for three groups. He/
she is observing group work and provides help if necessary. After
reading completed work cards the teacher is persuading students to
discussion. The students in groups complete their cards, and later show
their work effects in the class.
