You work for the WWF Advertising Department : you'll have to design the front page of a  leaflet campaigning against man-made global warming effects.

The WWF = the World Wildlife Fund : a global environment-friendly organization created 56 years ago. Its logo 

shows a black and white panda (a protected species)

Watch the picture below attentively... then write as many words or phrases (expressions) as possible !

 

TIP : Reuse the previous vocabulary activities (Questions 1 to 5 page 31 - workbook, ex. #1-2 -copy) and the vocabulary mind map on the environment you worked on last week.

(up to 125°F/51.6°C in Nevada) : "On warm summer days, New York City can be as much as 10 degrees warmer than surrounding areas. Ready New York : Beat the Heat offers tips on how to stay healthy and cool during the summer months, conserve water and energy, and identify and treat individuals with heat-related illnesses"

To access the 2 PDF pages,
