: Our earth is fragile and becoming more polluted each day. How will we protect it for future generations? It is interesting to note that our recognition of Earth Day started with the efforts of one man, U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin! While we may not make such a recognizable contribution, each of us can make a difference in protecting our environment. We need a clean environment, free of pollutants in the air, water, and land. This lesson will give students the opportunity to research ways to "reduce, reuse, and recycle" by creating a book Everybody Needs a Clean Environment based on the pattern in the book Everybody Needs a Rock by Byrd Baylor.
