IELTS WRITING TASK 2
Because of the busy pace of modern life, many children spend most of their time indoors and have little exposure to the natural world. How important is it for children to learn to understand and appreciate nature? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
In my opinion, it is extremely important for children to learn to understand and appreciate nature. Without balance in the natural world, we would not survive. When people understand this, they are less likely to cause harm to our natural environment. If children have opportunities to enjoy and learn about the natural environment, they will grow up to appreciate and care for it.
We depend on nature for the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the materials we use to build our houses and make our clothing. Everything in the natural world is interdependent. If something goes wrong with one thing, it affects everything else in the environment. When nature is out of balance, animals start losing their food sources and habitat. This eventually affects our food sources and other natural resources that we depend on.
When we understand that air and water pollution destroy parts of the natural environment, we may be more careful about our actions. We may look for ways to drive cars less frequently. We may try to create less garbage. We might support laws that require industries to reduce the amount of pollution they create.
Parents and schools have the important task of helping children learn to understand and appreciate nature. Parents should encourage their children to play outside. They should encourage them to notice the wild plants and animals around them. Schools should devote part of the curriculum to environmental studies, starting with the earliest grades.
Adults need to show children that caring for our natural environment is important. Our future survival depends on it.
