NBSE Class 10 Environmental Education Chapter 1: Protection of landscape and conservation of water
A good landscape gives pleasure to the eyes. It also ensures pure air to breathe and pure water to drink. Of course, it is the duty of municipal authorities to provide a clean landscape in the area you are residing in. But, we have also a role to play. We assist the authorities in maintaining a clean landscape. This can be in the form of not littering the streets, not spoiling the beauty of picnic spots and not leaving the rubbish on the hills and mountains.
NBSE Class 10 Environmental Education Chapter 2: Conservation and management of forests and ocean resources
At the beginning of the 20th century, about 30% of the land was covered with forests in our country. By the close of the 20th century, this forest cover was reduced to 19.4%. The National Forest Policy has recommended 33% forest cover for plains and 67% for hills. Thus, the forest cover available to us is far below that prescribed by the National Forest Policy. Forests are our lifeline. Forests provide us with fuel, timber, medicines and protect us from the vagaries of extreme weather conditions.
NBSE Class 10 Environmental Education Chapter 3: Conservation of Soil and Wildlife
The fertile surface layer of the earth capable of supporting plant life is called soil. Measures taken to prevent the loss of soil from the earth is called soil conservation. Soil conservation helps to maintain the fertility of the soil which in turn ensures sustainable agriculture. Micro-organisms and animals living in the soil help in the cycle of nutrients.
