What have you learnt about your environment today and what have you done to make it better?

Our home is within the our environment and the environment, our home. This space should be kept clean and free from anything that can cause harm to those living within it. However, because our well-being is dependent on the human behaviors or attitude towards the environment fora healthy, safe palce to leave in, or a disaster zone, it becomes alarming to see people neglect and cause more harm to it.

One of the result of human neglect to the society is mosquito.

Malaria is a very common disease in our society. The cause of this sickness is a very tiny insect called the mosquito. Moaquitos easily multiply in places of stagnant water and bushes.

People in the society help to breed mosquitos when they don’t clear their living area of surrounding bushes. Also, leaving water puddles around and not daining it. When malaria is contracted, the victim suffers headache, lack of apetite, vomitting, heat, cold and in serious cases, they hallucinate.

Some malaria victims do not survive sickness. There has been many instances of malaria death. It is no wonder it is called a killer diease.

Although mosquitos cannot be completely erradicated from the world, preventive measures aside the already mentioned can be adopted to limit the number of people who contact it. Adopting the habbit of sleeping in a mosquito treated net, reqularly defoliating and general regular sanitation practices as well as eating and keeping healthy is a step to an almost malaria free society.

That was how class three spent their outdoor. Learning is more fun with an open mind. Take a walk with an open mind, see what is wrong with your environment and think up ways to make it better.

A transgenerational thinker once said, when we work together, little is impossible.
