I'm sure you have heard about the environment in magazines or the TV. But what is it exactly? Quite simply the environment is what is around you. No matter where you are, you have an environment. At home, at school, at the lake, in the forest, everything around you is your environment

Your environment has an effect on you and you can have an effect on your environment. If you throw litter into the street, you are changing your environment. You are making it dirtier and not as nice to live in. If you are sitting in a hot room with no windows, you may feel sleepy. Your environment (or one part of it, the air) is having an effect on you.

In a day you can go through many different environments. Your neighbourhood is an environment. The province of Alberta is an environment. So is Canada. So is the whole world!
