Ms. Gump’s class created a “floating trash island” on the blacktop from trash collected around the playground.

 Water is important. Everybody needs to drink water or we would be thirsty. Without water people would die. Every single drink is made out of water. You cannot have orange juice or milk without water. Without water, plants cannot grow and we would not have fruits and vegetables. If water goes away we will not be able to wash our bodies in the shower or bath. Without water we could not go swimming and exercise. Ocean animals could not swim and would die. Without water you would stay hot. We cannot clean our dishes without water. That is why water is so important to the Earth.

We can save the water. Here is how:

  • Turn off the water when you are soaping your hands.
  • Turn the water off while you are brushing your teeth.
  • Take a fast shower.
  • Wash fruits and vegetables in a bowl and then put the water on plants
  • Water plants outside in the morning or night before it gets hot.
  • Take shower instead of a bath.
  • Run the dishwasher or wash machine only when it is full.
  • Use all the water you take from the sink, don’t dump it down the drain.
  • Don’t throw tissues in the toilet and flush.
  • Turn off the dripping sink. If it is broken, get a plumber or an adult.
  • Turn off the sink when you are done.

The ocean is super important. Animals needs a place to swim and to eat. Humans need the ocean to fish for food. In the ocean there are trash islands. Trash islands are floating groups of trash. These islands are killing animals. The animals are eating the trash and dying. To stop the trash islands, people need to not throw trash in the water. Don’t throw trash near the water as well. Please take care and take action to keep our water clean and safe.
