This is the text (if you need help).

More children have "eco-anxiety". They are worrying about climate change and the future of Earth. Teachers want more eco-lessons in schools. They say schools need eco-lessons for all age groups. An ecology group said only four per cent of schoolchildren knew a lot about the environment.

The Earth Rangers campaign group said eco-anxiety affects children in many ways. They feel fear. The group wants to help children with their negative feelings. It wants school activities so children can teach their parents about protecting nature. It said: "Children are on the front lines of climate change."
