Today is earth day. Earth is our home in our universe. Earth must be the most wonderful home of all.
Earth is an exceptional planet. It has just the right atmosphere and temperature to support life. It has water. It has a moon that stabalizes earth's rotation. Earth has many special features. All of these things together make earth the only place we know where people, plants, and animals can live and grow.
All of these things make earth the most wild, wacky, and wonderful planet of all! We must work to protect earth to keep it clean and vibrant.
