5.1 Why should each one plant one?

Dear children, as we know that trees play an important role in our life. They not only meet our needs but also sustain our existence on earth. It is the importance of trees in our life that makes us indebted to them.

Let's try to figure out how important trees are to us. Working in small groups, write down the benefits of trees with your peers.

Benefits of Trees to Man











Share the benefits you have written with your teacher and see which group has recorded the maximum benefits.

Children, remember trees are the lifeline of our world. Without them, life on earth would be lost because they give us oxygen, which makes it possible for humans and wildlife to breathe. Trees are our natural filters which purify the air.


5.2 What if there were no trees?

Dear children, trees play an important role in enhancing the quality of our lives, but human beings have forgotten their importance and have come down to remove greenery from the earth with their selfish activities. Children, have you ever wondered what the world would look like without trees? Take five minutes, close your eyes and imagine the land without trees and write down how the earth will be like if trees disappear.


Earth without Trees

Suggestions: - Effects on air, soil, rain, various products, water resources, life and earth etc.

Children, you should know that every year Van Mahotsav Day is celebrated on July 1, Earth Day on April 22 and Environment Day on June 5. Think and write down the reasons for celebrating these days.


Children, draw the picture as instructed in the given space.
