Happy Earth Day!

Hello everyone, i hope you are all OK.
Every year on April 22nd people all over the world celebrate Earth Day.
Earth Day is all about doing as much as possible to protect the environment.
I have made an ATC to celebrate Earth Day and last year when I was doing some
school work about Earth Day I found this poem and I would like to share it with you.

I am the Earth, and the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass, each honey tree,
Each bit of mud and stick and stone
is blood and muscle, skin and bone.
And just as I need every bit
of me to make my body fit,
so Earth needs grass and stone and tree
and things that grow here, naturally.
That's why we celebrate this day,
that's why across the world we say:
As long as life is dear, is free,
I am the Earth and the Earth is me.
By Jane Yolen
