Ideas for a School Project
Penelope and Violet are good friends. Penelope asks her friend to help her with some ideas for her school project. Her project is about global warming…
Penelope: Violet, can you help me with my school project?
Violet: Sure, I’ll try. What is it about?
Penelope: It’s about global warming. Can you think of any ways to save energy at home and at school?
Violet: Mm…how about turning off the lights when you don’t need them?
Penelope: That’s a good idea! What about the computers and TVs too?
Violet: Yes, it’s the same with all appliances – turn them off when you don’t need them.
Penelope: You’re right. A lot of people don’t remember to turn them off… I try to, but sometimes I forget.
Violet: Exactly. My brother leaves his computer on all day and all night, even when he’s not at home.
Penelope: And he probably has no idea that it harms the environment by wasting electricity…
Violet: That’s for sure! And I don’t think he cares either! I think I need to remind him…
