Mrs. Elliott's first grade students think about a gift to give the world:

If I could give the people in the world a gift I would give them money so they could buy food and clothes and be happy and love each other. I would build houses and a city and cars and apartments so they could build more cars.

If I could give the world a gift I would give the world homes, because some people don’t have homes. I would give the world more land for the animals because animals don’t have much land for them to live.
– Walker Whitehouse

If I could give the world a gift I would clean the trash on the ground so the world could be pretty and the world would be a better place. The world would be a better place because it would be clean. I would build a jungle gym without electricity and a jungle gym for the animals.

If I could give the world a gift I would give it some plants and some love. I would pick up some trash. It would be so fun if I gave it some love and some plants and picked up the trash.

If I could give the world a gift I would give it a family, because everybody needs a family and a home, too.  Everybody needs a home and I would clean the world, too.

If I could give the world a gift I would keep the world healthy. Then I would give away stuff that kids need like snow pants and boots and hats. I would give the stuff to keep kids warm for the winter.

If I could give the world a gift I would love them, even God, too, and even Jesus, even the one who makes the rain come down. The world is nice and clean, very clean. I like the world.  Mother Nature is the best we like. The world is nice to us. 
– Alexis Mapes

If I could give the world a gift I would clean the earth up so it can be healthy. I would plant flowers in the park to make the park smell good. I would clean up the litter by my house, because I love the world so so much. It is good for our planet. I will give the world clean water, because I want the people of the world to have clean cool and fresh water to drink.

If I could give the world a gift I would pick up everything that is trash. I would grow plants in a cup and when they were big I would put them in the world. I would plant flowers and tomatoes and carrots and all of the vegetables and plants. I would make it healthy. I don’t want the world not healthy. I want it healthy, so the world will be happy and healthy. 
– Alexis Harvey

If I could give the world a gift I would pick up the trash everywhere. I would give people cozy clothes and boots and socks. I would give people food and vegetables and fruits. I would give people fresh water. I would give the people happiness.

If I could give the world a gift I would give it more plants. I would build a wheel that would make power. I would make more crops to feed all the people on the planet. I would make an orphanage for all the kids that don’t have homes. I would build houses for people who are poor and don’t have houses. I would build a playground out of plastic bottles so then we wouldn’t have to use the world’s trees. 
– Eathen Edwards

If I could give the world a gift I would grow some trees because it will help us breathe. I would give good and healthy and clean water. I would give each family a house. I would give a smile, and pets, and clothes and toys and food and lights, and life and school and night and morning.

If I could give the world a gift I would be a good friend with our family. It is so fun being good to help family. I am good because I want to be. I would give toys. I like being friends with the earth. It is so fun to be good to the earth.
– Omar Cortes-Otero

If I could give the world a gift I would give the world toys, or a TV, or a clock. I would make beautiful gowns for the Homecoming Queen or handsome tuxedos for the Homecoming King.
– Mary Margaret Cool

If I could give the world a gift I would try to look for trash.  A lot of people don’t care about the world, but I do. At Boy Scouts my friends and I went on an old road with trash bags and picked up the trash. I know the world is more special than a video game. Without the world, there would be nobody.
