Task 3: Report to the class what your group has discussed. (Tường thuật cho lớp những gì nhóm của em đã thảo luận.)
My group has discussed the threats to beaches which are now being polluted with all kind of rubbish such as plastic bags, pieces of glass and cigarette buits, ...etc... And we think that in order to rescue beaches, we should clean them up and at the same time tell everybody not to litter them. Besides these, we should educate people how important a healthy environment can be to our life! And this project should be carried out in schools so that small school population can get a good habit of conserving environment from early ages.
