In 1963, Senator Gaylord Nelson from the United States began to worry about our planet. He noted the increased litter, exhaust fumes, smoke from factories, the dangerous spraying of chemicals - all things that were doing harm to the Earth and our health. Nelson had an idea and on April 22, 1970, the first Earth Day was held. In this Canadian production, you will learn about the history of Earth Day and its vital importance to the health of our planet - the planet we rely on for our basic needs - food, water, and shelter. Canada's First Nations people have lived off this land for thousands of years and understand how each part of the environment affected another. Their relationship to the Earth is one of respect. We all have to learn to respect the Earth and to be responsible. So what can you do to help on Earth Day? Take a look at what other kids, schools and communities throughout Canada have done. Ranging from the 3 R's to planting trees and gardens to a walking school bus, you'll get some great ideas on how you can help. And remember, every day should be Earth Day. This video helps students understand the importance of doing their part to protect the only earth we have.
