  1. Thank you so much Tr.Amira, Do we have to have a picture with our assignment?

  2. were supposed to post it here right tr.amira

  3. Asslamualaikum. On April the 22nd, it’s Earth Day. Earth Day is a day when we try to increase awareness and appreciation of our planet, Earth. Today I am going to talk to you about the background of Earth Day, what we should do to celebrate it, and why we should celebrate Earth Day.
    To start off, I will tell you about the background of Earth Day. Earth Day was created by a United States Senator and governor. He invented Earth Day in 1970, April 22nd. He invented it because he wanted to focus the public on the environment, so we could help the Earth become a healthier place for humans to live. He sent letters to governors, and he wrote articles for college newspapers and high schools so he could spread the word. The word eventually spread, and soon enough, many different colleges, high schools, grade schools, communities etc. were all participating in Earth Day events and celebrations.
    Now I will tell you why we should celebrate Earth Day. Well, we should celebrate Earth Day because it’s OUR planet and we should care for it. Every minute, about 100 trees are cut down! Can you imagine how many trees cut down in a day, a week, a year? WOW! That is a lot of trees. So, to help raise awareness and appreciation we have Earth Day. Earth Day makes people think about how many bad things are happening to the environment, pollution, cutting down trees, etc. So think about it, if we didn’t celebrate or even have an Earth Day, how would people know and be encouraged to stop the pollution? I don’t know, television maybe, but it isn’t fun to watch the news, is it?
    Now I will tell you about how we can celebrate Earth Day. WOW! The possibilities are almost endless. First, we should try to use as little electricity as possible that could be turning off the TV, radio, computer, etc. Or we could not use our cars for the day, if that isn’t possible, carpool. Maybe we should try to recycle paper, and instead of printing a report which wastes paper and electricity, we could e-mail which doesn’t waste paper. As I said, the possibilities are almost endless, maybe you could think of more ways to help save this world from pollution.
    This is our world, we should care for it, and we should try to protect it. And instead of only having one day in honour of protecting this world, we should celebrate it everyday. Everyday should be Earth Day! I hope that by reading this, you will be encouraged to help protect this world.

    Thanks, Sophia.

  4. That’s my Earth Day project 🙂

  5. Earth Day
    Earth day is a day that we should use less energy like electricity and fossil fuels. We can drive less, use the computer less, and watch T.V. less.

    On Earth day we cut down some of the resources of our daily life to help save the Earth. Everyone should do this. I also say Earth Day is every day.

    BE GREEN!!! Use reusable bags from home instead of plastic bags. Don’t use as much plastic. It pollutes, and did you know that every piece of plastic in the world ever made is still here? The sun wears it down and down, but they don’t disappear.

    Did you know that in the Pacific Ocean, there’s a bib thing of garbage and plastic as/bigger than Texas? We should recycle to make it smaller.

    I conclude by saying that everyone should participate everyday, not just on Earth Day. We should reuse reduce and recycle!

  6. WHY SHOULD PEOPLE CELEBRATE EARTH DAY ?

    Earth day is a very important day.More than 175 countries celebrate it .I think that there are a few reasons why people should celebrate earth day.

    REASON 1: Earth is our home

    Allah had given us a place to live, earth. He could of sent us another planet to live on, no he choses earth. Earth is the only planet that has oxygen and water, but astronomers think that there could be a planet far away that may have oxygen.As you may know,
    many people waste the resourses that we live on.We should preserve our home for the next generations to come.this is a big reason should celebrate earth day.

    REASON 2:Help the environment
    Most people celebrate earth day to help the environment .Some people recycle,reduce,and reduce and some people try to use less electricity such as T.V. , computer, lights,hairdryers, etc.Others may try to use less hot water.Instead of washing your hands with hot water,use cold water or on a hot day try taking a clod shower.Did you know that if everyone picks up one piece of trash there will be 300 million less litter in the world.

    REASON 3:Bring the family together
    DO you have a brother downstairs on the computer and having a sister upstairs on the phone why not take down the electronics down for earth day.Spend some time with the family maybe playing a board game or sharades.Go to the park,bike,fly kites,or enjoy the sunset.Or why not have a barbeque, mmm.. . At night go camping outside or in your own living room.There are so many ways to have fun without electricity.

    So, as you can see there a so many reasons why we should celebrate earth day.If we all work together we can make everyday an earth day

  7. sorry there are alot of spaces

  8. Earth Day
    Earth Day was made to inspire awareness and appreciation of the environment. This was founded by John Mc Connell in 1969, and it is celebrated on April 22 every year.
    We barely stop to see the effects on the environment unless there is a natural disaster. The increasing in population, deforestation and pollution is harming the earth. We should stop global warming and take care of the environment before it’s too late.
    Earth Day is a good way to increase awareness, so that we can live with nature peacefully. Younger people should be aware of the beautiful things in nature, while seeing the problems faced by our environment.
    Here are some ways of how we can celebrate Earth Day. You can plant some trees, make nature crafts at school or home like a bird feeder. Learn more about the environment, about pollution or endangered species and reduce, reuse, and recycle all day long. You can also pick up garbage from parks and streets, have Earth Day fairs at school, have classes to learn about the environment and wear green or brown.
    Extra tips are: to encourage others to help take care of the environment, cook a special Earth Day meal like vegetables and ride your bike to school and other short distances.
    Remember every day is Earth Day. Try to apply my tips not only on Earth Day try doing them everyday.

  13. ~Earth Day~
    Earth Day Date: Earth Day is on April 22nd

    Now when you hear the word earth day, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Is it Earth hour, is it recycling, or is it a day to garden or make the yard. Now earth day is an abundant day, but this day is not very important for some people but to others it is twenty-four hours of being environmentally friendly to the Earth. How do we celebrate Earth Day? Why do we celebrate Earth Day? How can Earth Day make a difference in life and what can we learn from it? All of these questions are important. We also will learn the History of Earth Day.

    What and why do we celebrate Earth Day?

    Have you ever wondered why we celebrate Earth day and why we have that amazing day? I have asked myself that question several times and I got the results! Now Earth is our planet, and we should keep it clean and treat it with love and care. The Earth is the only planet in the solar system that has biodiversity. Earth Day is all about protecting this wonderful, amazing, and unique biodiversity. People all over the world celebrate “Earth’s birthday” (Earth Day) to show their efforts in protecting our plants and animals. We celebrate earth day to show and appreciate the great creation of Allah. We celebrate Earth Day to send a little message to the earth and say that we care about you big guy! J Earth Day also reminds us that we are all on the same planet and that it is Our RESPONSIBILITY to keep our earth clean because it is our planet! When we celebrate earth day we are making a goal for improving our environment and when we celebrate earth day we are making a goal for improving our environment and trying our absolute hardest to achieve our goal. If we believe we can achieve!

    How to celebrate Earth Day?

    Now we know what Earth Day is, and why we celebrate it, but how do we do Earth Day? The way Earth Day works is helping the earth, for example, recycling. During Earth Day we should ALWAYS remember the three R’s, “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”. We can also write on paper instead of printing. Another way of celebrating Earth Day is cut down driving and start biking to distances instead or also walk to short distances. You can also stop the electronics for that day, instead you can go as a family to the park, have a nice family game night and play outside! There are many different varieties of options that you can do to participate in Earth Day. Remember that Earth is our home!

    History of Earth Day:

    Senator Gaylord Nelson of the U.S founded Earth Day. Earth Day was first celebrated on April 22nd, 1970 in the U.S. Across the U.S, 20 million people and local schools, and community centers participated in Earth Day. The huge group of the first Earth Day made a great success, it made Earth Day the largest organized celebration in the history the U.S. Earth Day’s great influence to the U.S people helped the government more powerful and stronger laws to help the environment.

    Now. If we want to live on junk then don’t celebrate Earth day, but if we don’t make everyday an Earth Day we will just regret it. So let’s make everyday an Earth Day! J I hope this reminder had influenced you in being environmentally friendly and make you think before you do any move to harm Earth!

  14. What is Earth Day?

    Earth Day is a birthday. Just like a birthday is a day to celebrate a person, Earth Day is a day to celebrate the Earth. Earth Day was formed on April 22, 1970, in San Francisco, California. Every year, over a hundred countries join to celebrate the earth. On Earth Day, we remember to appreciate nature and learn ways to protect our environment.

    Earth Day reminds us we all share the same planet. Sharing the earth means taking responsibility for what we use and how we use it. It is a day to think of the environmental challenges we face and how to solve them. Protecting Earth is every person’s and every country’s responsibility.

    On Earth Day we should clean the earth, plant trees, and rally to get the governments attention. For example: in India, one of the Earth Days was celebrates by approximately 1,200 kids. They held a rally which had signs with slogans and messages. The children also performed skits about the environment. The India Habitat Center held painting and quiz competitions.

    Another example is: in Kenya, distinguished guests and schoolchildren planted 1,000 trees in Nairobi’s endangered Karura forest. The plantings were done to honour Earth Day and Kenya’s National Tree Planting Day on April 21.

    In conclusion, the Earth Day is a very important event. We should honour the earth and remember that it is the duty of each and every one of us to protect and clean the earth. We are living on the earth so we must also take care of it.

  15. Introduction
    On Saturday April 22 2012, it was earth day. But most people don’t celebrate it. Its mostly because people don’t have any reason to celebrate it. But now you’ll learn why you should.

    Global warming
    Did you know that in 2040 or less all the ice in the world will melt? Well it will because of global warming. When it happens, it also makes sea levels rise which can cause floods in below sea level places. Global warming is caused by car gas and other manmade gases.

    Natural disasters
    One of the signs of the Day of Judgment is that there will more natural disasters. But nothing is perfect and so is the earth. Natural disasters are part of the earths system. For example earthquakes are just pieces of land bumping into each other. Floods are basically sea water rising and spilling into human territory

    Environmental actions
    On earth day it’s a good idea to go eco-friendly. We can do this in many ways. We can avoid going to places by cars instead you could walk or bike. Try to go without electricity the whole day. You could go pick up garbage by the park. And finally you could plant a tree. Each of these things makes a difference in your life.

    Conclusion
    Now you know why you should celebrate earth day. But you also know that you must make a move. And you can make that move on earth day. To conclude I hope you celebrate earth day next year.

  16. EARTH DAY

    Do you know what is special about April 22nd? Its earth day of course!!! April 22nd is a day when people help to save the earth. They turn off lights when no one is in the room; they turn off water when it is not needed. But, why do we do these things on Earth day? What’s so special about it?

    All over the Earth, the green is disappearing. They are cutting down trees to make paper. They are plowing through the Earth to build houses. People all over the world are destroying nature. But there are also people all over the world trying to save the Earth. Why is this important, you ask? Because this is what Earth day is all about!!!

    Why do we have Earth day? Do you know? That’s easy!! It’s because we have to help the Earth. What better way to do it then to have a special day when it’s important to do it. When everyone is encouraged to do it. On Earth day people are encouraged to save energy, therefore saving the Earth and the creatures and plants living on it

    So now you know what is happening on the Earth and why we have Earth day, but what can you do to help? That’s simple and, though it might sound hard, really easy. For example, if you see a room that is not being used, you should turn the light off. If you are making your wudu, don’t turn on the water and then take your socks off and roll your sleeves. Do that before turning on the water. That’s how you can do your part and help save the Earth.

    Now you know all about Earth day. But we shouldn’t only help the Earth on that day. Don’t leave the light on if there is no one in the room. Don’t keep the water running while you aren’t using it. Always help save the Earth and preserve energy. Just pretend everyday is Earth day.

  17. Earth Day

    Today I am going to be talking about earth day. Earth day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to increase appreciation of earth’s natural environment. The things I will be talking about are: who invented earth day and why, what activities we do on earth day, and how we can help to protect the earth for our future.

    Gaylord Nelson invented Earth Day. He was a Senator from Wisconsin but he wasn’t the only person to come up with this similar idea. Nelson was concerned about the environmental problems of the earth. He thought that in USA they should be more concerned with the environment. So he came up with earth day.

    I’m going to tell you what we do on earth day. We plant trees to help the environment. We recycle and reuse all day long. We ride our bikes instead of using a car. We turn off the lights when we are done using them. We compost our vegetables and clean up our neighborhoods and school yards.

    Here are some things we can do to help the earth everyday. We can plant a garden, use reusable bags, wash your laundry in cold water, stop using plastic bottles and bags. We can also continue to keep recycling and composting. These are some things we can do to help the environment. Try to do a few of them.

    Earth day is an important day. It was a wonderful idea to have earth day. I think that we should take care of our earth and environment every day. It shouldn’t only be one day in a year we clean the earth, it should be everyday!

  18. Salam Here is my earth day essay:

    Imagine you were the earth, How would you feel about being polluted and being covered by garbage? I’m sure you wouldn’t feel great at all. That is exactly why there is a selected day in the year called earth day. Just because there is only one day selected out of the whole year it doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t care for the earth, everyday should be earth day. You may be thinking why it’s so important to care for the earth, well here’s exactly why.

    You probably don’t think much about air. You can’t see it, hear it, or grab a handful of it. It’s almost as if it weren’t there, and yet it’s just about the most precious thing in the world. Animals breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. Plants take in the carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Together, animals and plants keep our atmosphere in perfect balance. But what do we do as humans; we let out more than 70 million tons of carbon dioxide into the air every day. Do you think that animals and plants can balance this? Well, the answer is NO! We as humans let out way to much carbon dioxide into the air. This needs to change.

    If you play lots of sports and have strong muscles, you probably think you are solid rock, right? Well you’re not. You are actually a big blob of water, with just enough solid material to keep you from dribbling away onto the floor. That’s right you’re about 70% water. The earth is mostly water, too. About 74% of the planet’s surface is covered by water, including oceans, lakes, rivers, and polar ice caps. Even air is filled with water vapor, which condenses, or turns to liquid, forming clouds. If you’ve ever swallowed a mouthful of ocean water by mistake, you know how salty it is. And that’s where more than 97% of the earth’s water is, in the oceans. What humans and most other animals and plants need to survive, though, is unsalty water, or fresh water. We need it for drinking, washing, and growing our food. But we humans are not really taking care of our 3% of fresh water. We are littering, polluting, and wasting it. For example: you wake up in the morning and turn the tap on, you start brushing your teeth and the tap is still on for the next 10 – 15 minutes. But did you know that you are wasting about 7-10 gallons of water in those 15 minutes. This is an example on how much we waste our 3% of fresh water.

    Here are some ways of how we can celebrate Earth Day. You can plant some trees, make nature crafts at school or home like a bird feeder. Learn more about the environment, about pollution or endangered species and reduce, reuse, and recycle all day long. You can also pick up garbage from parks and streets, have Earth Day fairs at school, have classes to learn about the environment and wear green or brown.
    Extra tips are: to encourage others to help take care of the environment, cook a special Earth Day meal like vegetables and ride your bike to school and other short distances.

    In conclusion ,the earth is our home and we need to live here until the day of judgement.
    We need to keep the earth clean and start using the tips that all this people have posted on the internet, written in books, and said on the news. Lets start taking action starting NOW!!!

    Hope you like it
    Thank you

  20. asalmualikum tr amira here is my assignment:

    Earth day

    Earth day is celebrated every year on April 22. The purpose of earth day is to increase awareness about the natural environment of the earth. It is celebrated in more than 170 countries! The concept of Earth day was developed by U.S Senator Gaylord Nelson and John Mc Connell.

    The air that we breathe and the water that we drink are getting polluted more and more everyday. The natural resources of the earth are being depleted every day. More forests are cut than grown for commercial purposes. More fish are caught from the oceans than being produced by nature. The coral reef is disappearing and the earth temperature is rising. The weather system is being disturbed… and we all know that we are the main culprits of this problem …… having such days like Earth day, make us pause and think to change our behavior and be conservative about the resources of the Earth.

    What can we do to celebrate Earth day?

    We can honor Earth Day by showing our awareness of environmental issues and by letting others know what they can do to make a difference. Even small things can have a great impact! Such as pick up litter, recycle, turn off the water when you brush your teeth, switch to online bill payments, use public transportation, turn down your water heater and install energy efficient lights. If you think about it, there are many things you can do to improve the status of the mother Earth.

    We are the cause of this destruction and we can heal the Earth let us not just celebrate it only once a year, but also celebrate it everyday of the year!

    this is a great picture

    thank you hope you enjoy salam

  21. Mohammed??????????

    Assalamu Alaikum,

    Earth Day is a very important day in our life. It requires all of our power together hand by hand! It is very easy to do, because it is only one day. also nothing is going to be hard in our life if you try your best. I`ll be talking about how helpful Earth Day is.

    Their are couple of easy things to do on Earth Day, recycle,turn of lights, dont use lots of water[when brushing your teeth, taking a bath, washing your face or making wudoo`.],dont use gas, or dont use anything that has to do with electricity. These things can help our community in many different ways.

    We should celebrate Earth Day because we need life. Even though Allah told us only to celebrate Eid al fitr and Eid aladha, but still you dont have to celebrate Earth day, we can just follow it. Allah told us not to waste anything. This is my message to who ever is reading. Iwished that people can follow Earth Day atleast once a month!

    Assalamu Alaikum.

    Conclusion
    There are many, many other ways that you can use to help the Earth so why not get started. Earth is something very important to mus. Not only us buteveryone in this world depends on it. It is our dutie as a muslim and a part of the to take care of it.

  23. Earth Day is an event that occurs every year. This day was created to show the earth that we really care. On this special day, many people around the world hold events to increase awareness and to show appreciation to the earth. This day reminds us to help keep the earth clean and healthy.

    The first Earth Day celebrated was held on April 22, 1970, in San Francisco, California. Earth Day was invented by an American Senator, Gaylord Nelson. He realized that it was time to start making a difference. It was time to let everyone know that we needed to take care of the earth. On that very day, many people around the world made promises to help the environment and create changes to their community. Until now, there have been more than 500 million people, in more than 180 countries, participating on Earth Day!

    Earth Day is a very important day. On this very day people around the world realise that we need to take care of the earth. It is our responsibility. This is our home and our life. There is no other planet in the universe that we will be able to live in, so why are we destroying it? For example, the biggest problem right now is global warming. Global warming is when the earth’s surface temperature increases the average temperature. This is mainly caused by greenhouse gases and deforestation. Greenhouse gases are produced by burning fossil fuels, and deforestation is happening because of our need of wood. We can change our habits and looking for alternate solutions that don’t hurt the earth. Did you know, for every second, one and one-half acres of rainforest are being cut down! As for burning fuel, we can look start using different technology to run our cars. We need to solve these problems! We need to save our planet!

    You don’t have to wait until you are older. You can start helping the earth heal. There are tons of things you can do to help the earth! The list goes on and on! Here are a few things you can start doing today:

    1. Use less water.
    2. Use regular water bottles instead of plastic water bottles.
    3. Try to use a bike instead of a car. By doing this for two weeks you can reduce around 1590 pounds of greenhouse gases from getting to the air.
    5. Recycle. If an office building that has 7000 workers recycled paper waste everyday for a year, it would be the same as eliminating 400 cars from the world.
    6. Compost. This helps the soil get healthier.
    7. Use ENERGY STAR products. For example, change your light bulbs into compact florescent light bulbs. They last 10 times longer than the regular light bulbs. Plus they use two-thirds of the energy.
    8. Turn off the lights in a room when you are leaving.
    9. Dry your clothes on a clothes hanger instead of using the dryer.
    10. Plant a tree. As you know, trees absorb carbon dioxide, which is a big help!

    Now you know what Earth Day is, why it’s important, and what we should do. All that is left is to take action! Remember Earth Day isn’t only on April 22nd, it’s everyday!

  24. Earth Day

    Today I will talk to you about Earth Day.We should participate in Earth Day because it saves the earth.You know Earth Day should be every day so we can save our earth from global warming. We should all ways care for our earth because Allah gave it to us so we should take care for the earth.

    We can save our earth by doing the following:
    1.Recycle
    2.Reuse
    3.Reduce
    4.Use less water
    5.Plant more trees
    6.Use less green house gases
    and there are many others.

    So you can help save the earth and all the endangered animals. You see you should take action too so lets all come together and save the earth and remember earth is a gift from Allah to us s every day should be Earth Day. Remember this is our earth we all should do the best we can to keep our earth safe.there are always ways to save our earth.

    Come on and save the earth!

  25. Earth Day
    Earth Day was founded by United States’ Senator Gaylord Nelson. Every year, 22nd April is celebrated as Earth Day We all should know what Earth Day is, why we should care about it, what we can do to save our planet, Earth.

    Every year, 22nd April is celebrated as Earth Day, which is a special day when people are encouraged to help the earth by increasing awareness for the environment. On Earth Day there are lots of activities to motivate people to plant, use less electricity, recycle and be green!

    Every day our planet’s resources such as water and air are polluted in so many ways, with using fossil fuels from cars and industries. Our Earth is running out of plants because of our daily resources. The world is getting hotter (global warming) because of fossil fuels and human resources such as the greenhouse gases. Heat waves, heavy rainfall, sea levels rising, and more extinction of animals will occur. So what can we do to help save our home, Earth?

    On Earth Day and every day we can take small steps, every single step will help. Instead of using normal light bulbs we can either use candles or energy efficient bulbs. Get fresh air and play in the outdoors instead of turning on the television or computer and sitting around. We should recycle as much as possible. It is in one of the three “R’s,” reuse, reduce, and recycle.

    Cutting down of plants is a big issue. Everyday there are trees being cut down. We should be planting not cutting! The Prophet S.A.W. said: “If a Muslim plants a tree or grow grains and a bird, a person or an animal eats from it will be counted as a charity for him.” Therefore we should plant more. We should fight to help stop cutting down trees. We can help community services helping to plant flowers.
    We know now that we should plant more, use less electricity, and recycle. We should make April 22nd an extraordinary day and make every day as Earth Day.

  26. Earth Day
    Earth Day was founded by United States’ Senator Gaylord Nelson. Every year, 22nd April is celebrated as Earth Day We all should know what Earth Day is, why we should care about it, what we can do to save our planet, Earth.

    Every year, 22nd April is celebrated as Earth Day, which is a special day when people are encouraged to help the earth by increasing awareness for the environment. On Earth Day there are lots of activities to motivate people to plant, use less electricity, recycle and be green!

    Every day our planet’s resources such as water and air are polluted in so many ways, with using fossil fuels from cars and industries. Our Earth is running out of plants because of our daily resources. The world is getting hotter (global warming) because of fossil fuels and human resources such as the greenhouse gases. Heat waves, heavy rainfall, sea levels rising, and more extinction of animals will occur. So what can we do to help save our home, Earth?

    On Earth Day and every day we can take small steps, every single step will help. Instead of using normal light bulbs we can either use candles or energy efficient bulbs. Get fresh air and play in the outdoors instead of turning on the television or computer and sitting around. We should recycle as much as possible. It is in one of the three “R’s,” reuse, reduce, and recycle.

    Cutting down of plants is a big issue. Everyday there are trees being cut down. We should be planting not cutting! The Prophet S.A.W. said: “If a Muslim plants a tree or grow grains and a bird, a person or an animal eats from it will be counted as a charity for him.” Therefore we should plant more. We should fight to help stop cutting down trees. We can help community services helping to plant flowers.

    We know now that we should plant more, use less electricity, and recycle. We should make April 22nd an extraordinary day and make every day as Earth Day.
