In most parts of the world, many students help their schools make less pollution. They join environment clubs. In an environment club, people work together to make our environment clean.
Here are some things students often do.
No-rubbish lunches. How many lunch bags do you throw away after lunch? Environment clubs ask students to bring their lunches in bags that can be used again. Every week they will choose which classes make the least rubbish and report them to the whole school.
No-car day. On a no-car day, nobody comes to school in a car including the students and the teachers. Cars give pollution to us, so remember:
Walk, jump, bike, or run!
Use your legs! It's lots of fun!
Turn off the water! Do you know that some toilets can waste twenty to forty cubic (立方) meters of water an hour? In a year, that would fill in a small river. In the environment clubs, students repair those broken toilets.
We love our environment. Let's work together to make it better.
Stress is everywhere in our everyday life. Not only men have it, but also women and young people.

Do you get headaches a lot?
Do you take sleeping pills?
Do you find it difficult to relax?
Do you usually hide your feelings?
Do you smoke and drink a lot to keep quiet?
Do you find it difficult to put your heart into something?
If you answer "Yes" to more than two of those questions, you are one of those people with stress. So what can you do about it?
Doing relaxing exercise, talking with friends and listening to light music are all usual ways to relieve stress.

My mother told me we would have a yard sale this weekend. Yesterday I cleared out lots of old things from my bedroom. I had to 1 five things I no longer use. At first, I was quite sad. Because I found 2 toys that I don't play anymore but still want to keep. I have owned the toy car since my sixth birthday, and I played with it almost every day 3 I was ten. I didn't want to lose my toy bear, either. It was one of my favorite toys. It came from my grandmother. I have had it 4 five years. I wanted to keep them because they brought back many sweet memories. "Maybe some kids need the toys more than you. They don't fit you anymore. But they can bring 5 to the kids," my mother said. In the end, I gave away the toys to kids in need happily.

Great white sharks (鲨鱼) in the Pacific Ocean. Wildebeest (角马) in Africa. Arctic terns (北极燕鸥) in the Atlantic. At first, these animals seem quite different. One swims, one walks, and the other flies. But they all have one thing in common. They all migrate (迁徙).
Some migrating animals move to a place with better temperatures. Some go to find food or water. The groups travel as one, but during the trip, they face many different challenges.
One challenge is distance (距离). Some migrating animals take very long trips. For example, one great white shark swam from Australia to South Africa and back. In nine months, it swam about 20, 000 kilometers!
Another challenge is finding enough food or water during the journey. For example, each Mali elephant needs over 200 liters (升) of water each day. To get this, they need to go from one waterhole to another.
Besides, migrating animals have to keep away from other animals because they want to eat them. The zebra (斑马) has to avoid lions. Traveling as a group helps keep them safe. When one zebra is in trouble, the other members make a circle around it.
By working as a group, migrating animals travel to live better lives.
