THE EARTH

Earth is the only planet whose English name does not derive from Greek or Roman mythology. The name comes from Old English and Germanic language. There are, of course, hundreds of other names for the planet in other languages.

This is the symbol for Earth:

Earth is the third planet from the Sun, and the fifth largest of the nine planets.


 

Earth, of course, can be studied without the aid of spacecraft. It was not until the twentieth century that we had maps of the entire planet. Pictures of our planet taken from space are very important! They are a big help in predicting the weather - especially in tracking and predicting hurricanes. They are also extraordinarily beautiful.

 

The Earth's surface is very young. This means that the Earth's surface has changed a lot from when it was first formed. Erosion and tectonic processes (like earthquakes) destroy, recreate and reshape most of the Earth's surface.

 

71 % of the Earth's surface is covered with water. Earth is the only planet on which water can exist in liquid form on the surface. Water is essential for life as we know it. The Earth's vast oceans keep temperatures stable - important for life on our planet. Water is also responsible for most of the erosion and weathering of the Earth's continents, a process unique in our solar system.

 

The Earth's atmosphere is 77% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, with traces of argon, carbon dioxide and water. The carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere is very important. Carbon dioxide helps to maintain the Earth's temperature by way of the "Greenhouse Effect." The Greenhouse Effect warms the Earth's temperature; without it, the oceans would freeze and life as we know it would be impossible.

 

Besides being the most interesting and unique of all the planets, our Earth is also the most beautiful. From space, the Earth's white clouds, blue oceans and brown lands seem to shine against the black backdrop of our solar system.

 

~ Earth is a small, rocky planet which supports a variety of life! As far as we know, Earth is unique from all other planets in this respect.
   
~ Temperatures at the Earth's center (called the "core") may be as high as 7500 K - That's hotter than the surface of the Sun!
   
~ The Earth is the densest major body in the solar system. This means that it's the most "compact" of all the planets. For example, you have two loaves of bread, both of the same amount. You smash one loaf of bread flat. Even though both loaves are of the same amount, the smashed bread is *denser* because it is more compact.
   
~ The Earth is 4.5 to 4.6 billion years old, but the oldest known rocks are less than 4 billion years old. Rocks older than 3 billion years are rare. The oldest fossils of living organisms are less than 3.9 billion years old!

The Earth is orbited by one moon.

5th June: WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY

20090604205558-weday-.gif

World Environment Day

World Environment Day is celebrated June 5 and it was instituted by the United Nations to stimulate worldwide awareness of the environment. A day to promote caring for our planet, Earth.

What is the United Nations?
It is an important international organization that promotes world peace, security, cooperation, and understanding.

World Environment Day is celebrated around the world with street rallies, bicycles parades, green concerts, essay and poster competitions in schools, tree planting, recycling efforts, clean-up campaigns and much more. 

What can we learn and why is it important to participate and celebrate this day?  

We want the world to be safe, clean and beautiful for you as you grow up, and we want your children and their children to have a beautiful world to live in.  For that to happen we have to work together to take care of our planet Earth.  So today we can celebrate and learn ways we can care for the world we live in.

Here are some activities that are really fun and you will see how you can help a little bit every day to keep our world beautiful, clean and safe!

Martes 2 de junio: Excursión a CANENCIA

20090529142441-images.jpg

Os recordamos que el martes vamos a realizar la actividad complementaria del área de Educación Física llamada "Senda Ecológica Canencia", donde realizaremos distinto tipo de juegos medioambientales, alternativos y sendas ecológicas.

Acordaros de que saldremos a las 9 de la mañana y volveremos a las 4 de la tarde. Los niños que coméis en el comedor del cole no tenéis que llevar comida porque nuestro amigo el cocinero nos preparará unos buenos bocatas, agua y fruta para comer. Los demás no os olvidéis de vuestro pic-nic que ya sabéis que realizando actividades al aire libre nos entra mucha hambre y sed.

No os olvidéis tampoco de llevar ropa y calzado deportivo, una gorra y una mochila con crema solar.

Os adjutamos un enlace para que echéis un vistazo a los lugares que vamos a visitar.

That’s the safe cross code!

Safe place, stop and wait,
Safe place, stop and wait,
Safe ground, look around,

Listen for a traffic sound,
If traffic’s coming let it pass,
Until the road is clear at last,
Then walking straight across the road,
keep watching, that’s the code!

Remember,

22nd April: EARTH DAY

20090420113350-pp-hotairballoon-earthday-japan.jpg

Earth Day is in the Spring Every Year

What is Earth Day?

Earth Day was started in 1970 by a man named John Mc Connell from the United States. It was originally held on the annual celebration of the March Equinox and still is by many people. However, it is generally celebrated on April 22. Earth Day is now celebrated worldwide.

When is Earth Day and Earth Month?

The UN designated April 22 Earth Day and April Earth Month.

What is the History of Earth Day?

Earth Day is a very special day specifically designed for all of us to think about earth issues . It is not only a special day in the town where we live, but a day that the whole world participates in! Often there are celebrations, events or campaigns that concern us with earth matters.

Some towns have Earth Day celebrations, and some people and groups participate in Earth Day projects.

You can participate in one of the existing projects, or start one of your own. Perhaps a small project with your mom or dad such as planting a tree, or a large project with your classroom or neighborhood friends such as a park clean up. The possibilities are endless. Try to think of something you would like to do-you too, can make a difference!

See the Information pages below full of ideas to make Earth Day a meaningful day!
