Read the passage below and then questions 6 - 9.

It is important to take care of one's teeth right from childhood. Taking good care of one's teeth will ensure that the teeth do not develop problems later in life. When one eats too many sweets and does not brush every day, it is likely that they will have problems in life such as toothaches, cavities, swelling and pain. One should visit the dentist at least once a year to ensure that their mouth is healthy. A dentist is a person who treats diseases and other conditions affecting the mouth, teeth and the gums.

There was once a boy in our class whose mouth smelt all through. Whenever he opened his mouth to answer a question, everyone held their nose. The stench that came out could not be withstood. The teacher took action at once and helped him. Besides advising him to brush after every meal, he also took him to the dentist himself for treatment. Many learners were beginning to withdraw from the class.

After a certain period of time of taking care of his teeth, the problem was taken care of and normalcy returned. All the learners freely interacted with the boy and made friends with him. All thanks to our class teacher

A long time ago the fish were able to walk on land together with their friends the hippopotamuses. They were very good friends and did almost everything together. They went hunting for food together and shared whatever they were lucky to get. One day, the sun did not rise early as it usually did, so the fish were not able to see their way through the darkness like their friends the hippopotamuses.

When their friend the hippopotamuses came back that evening with food, they all shared and retired. The same thing happened the following day. Their faithful friend was there for the fish again. This went on until the hippopotamuses got fed up. He said he could not go on feeding the fish as they sat back at home doing nothing.

The fish then decided to go to their leader to ask him why the sun had refused to shine for all those days. They were starving due to lack of food. Their leader told them that the sun was upset that they were walking on the land because they belonged strictly to the water. This news troubled the fish so much. They did not know what to do. One of them, however, advised that they should follow their leader's advice - never to leave the water. Since that day, the fish have never set their feet on land for fear of making the sun angry.

Environmental Day is the day when the world celebrates the God given environment. Environment refers to all the things found in it; living or otherwise. Normally, we converge as members of the environmental club at the County offices and take part in cleaning the environment as well as planting trees. This exercise does not end there. We enlighten the society on the importance of taking care of the environment. This is done through short skits, plays choral verses and even narratives. People come in large numbers especially the lovers of the environment.

This year we were lucky to be joined by the Governor himself. Some of us had only managed to watch him on television but today we got lucky to set our eyes on him. He is a handsome man with a kind heart. He promised us free scholarship to study further about the environment outside the country. We could not have been happier.
