Recently I got a plant for Christmas. At first it wasn’t growing and I thought I did something wrong. But then once it did grow, it was growing pretty fast. It has “I love you”
and a heart cut into the side. Is it strange I sometimes talk to it? I really love my plant. I can’t have a pet, so I kind of treat it as my pet instead. But I’m always worried that something is going to happen to it. I don’t even know what it is. But I feel like I’d be just talking to myself.
I love plants for many reasons. I used to enjoy watching my grandmother in her yard how she would talk to them and water them, and how she loved to be out in the garden barefooted
(赤脚). I loved the smell of her home when she would cut the flowers and bring them indoors,
and how she collected and dried them, and put them up to make the house look so nice. Grandma loved to tell stories of her fairies that lived in her yard. She said no matter what kind of day you had, you could come home and relax in your yard and enjoy the view. She was right!
My mother also loved plants. She talked with and cared for all her plants. She didn’t let my sisters water her plants, but she let me. She said they didn’t water them enough or too much, but she said I had the green thumb.
Today I have the love for plants as my grandmother and mother did. Believe it or not, I still have plants that Grandma had and Mom had. Now that they are gone, I still share their company in my garden. So when I step outside the garden barefooted, of course I also share the ground with my favorite ladies. I so enjoy seeing their plants grow, bloom and come back every year bigger and better.

How often do you travel by plane? How much electricity do you use? These days everyone is worried about the size of their carbon footprint. In order to reduce global warming we need to make our carbon footprints smaller. But how much CO2 are we responsible for?
A new book by Mike Berners-Lee (a leading expert in carbon footprint) might be able to help. How Bad are Bananas? The Carbon Footprint of Everything looks at the different things we do and buy, and calculates the amount of CO2 they produce. For example, to calculate the footprint of a bottle of juice, he tried to find out how much CO2 all of the following created: the ingredients, the electricity used in the factory, the equipment, the travel of the juice, and the packaging. It’s amazing how many different things need to be included in each calculation. And it’s frightening how much carbon dioxide everything produces. But all of this can help us decide which juice to drink. From Berners-Lee’s calculations, it’s clear that a bottle of locally-made juice has a smaller carbon footprint than a bottle of imported one. This is because the imported juice has been transported from far away, and it uses more packaging.
Berners-Lee has even calculated the carbon footprint of cycling to work. Nothing is more environmentally friendly than riding a bike, surely? Well, it depends on what you’ve had to eat before. To ride a bike we need energy and for energy we need food. So if we eat a banana and then ride a kilometer and a half, our footprint is 65g of CO2. However, if we eat bacon before the bike ride, it’s 200g. In fact, bananas are good in general because they don’t need packaging, they can be transported by boat and they grow in natural sunlight.
So, does this mean that cycling is bad for the environment? Absolutely not, for a start, if you cycle, you don’t use your car, and the fewer cars on the road, the fewer traffic jams. And
cars in traffic jams produce three times more CO2 than cars traveling at speed. Cycling also makes you healthy and less likely to go to a hospital. And hospitals have very big carbon footprints!
So maybe it’s time for us all to start making some changes. Pass me a banana and a bottle of local juice, please.
31.According to the passage, a carbon footprint shows .
A.how often someone travels by plane
B.how much electricity people use
C.how much carbon dioxide something produces
D.how responsible someone is for the environment
32.What can we learn from the research on the carbon footprint of a bottle of juice?
A.Locally-made juice has used more packaging.
B.Imported juice is friendlier to the environment.
C.Locally-made juice includes many kinds of things.
D.Imported juice has a bigger size of carbon footprint.
33.Why are bananas good in general?
A.They produce less CO2. B. They grow naturally.
C. They don’t need packaging. D. They provide energy for cycling.
34.To make our carbon footprints smaller, we should often .
A.drink more local juice B. cycle to work
C. calculate the amount of CO2 D. buy cheap things from the markets
35.The writer is trying to ask people to .
A.live a low carbon life B. read Berners-Lee’s new book
C. change ways of going out D. buy more local products
The American astronaut Neil Armstrong was the first person to walk on the moon. Neil Armstrong was born on August 5, 1930. He was the eldest of three children of Stephen and Viola Engel Armstrong. He became interested in airplanes from the age of six, when he took his first airplane ride. He began taking flying lessons at fourteen, and on his sixteenth birthday he got a pilot’s license.
Teenage Armstrong was also interested in outer space because he was excited about the views of the planets he saw through his neighbour’s powerful telescope.
Armstrong entered Indiana’s Purdue University in 1947 with a U.S. Navy scholarship. After two years of study he was called to join the navy. After the war Armstrong returned to Purdue and completed his degree. At the beginning of 1962 he decided to become an astronaut and applied for NASA selection and training. In September 1962 he became America’s first nonmilitary astronaut. In January 1969, Armstrong was selected as commander for Apollo 11, the first lunar landing mission. On July 16 at 9:32 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), Armstrong, with astronauts Michael Collins and Edwin Aldrin, lifted off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Apollo 11 passed into the gravitational influence of the moon on July 18 and circled the moon twice. Armstrong and Aldrin entered a small spacecraft named the Eagle, which then disconnected from the larger part named Columbia. At 4:17:40 p.m. EDT on July 20, almost everyone on Earth was listening to Armstrong’s radio transmission reporting that the Eagle had landed. At 10:56 p.m. he set foot on the moon, saying, “That’s one small step for a man,
one giant leap(飞跃) for mankind.” Armstrong and Aldrin spent nearly two and a half hours
walking on the moon. The astronauts left behind a metal plate reading, “Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the moon. We came in peace for all mankind.”
36.According to paragraph 1, we know that Neil Armstrong was .

Dear old fellow!”
The horse seemed to know the voice. 47.

Sport at school
Since the PE exam is coming, many students in our school are interested in taking exercise at school. Students take part in sports for two main reasons. First, sports are very interesting and challenging. Second, taking part in different kinds of sports can help them keep healthy, become stronger and stronger and make a lot of new friends.
Practice makes perfect. If they want to improve their sports skills, they have to practise a lot. There are many matches at school, which encourage students to take part in sports. Students are also active in practising in all sorts of sports in PE lessons and free time.
They can also learn much from sports. For example, sports can teach students about winning and losing. When they win, they will build up confidence. They also learn how to accept failure when they lose. Besides, they can learn some social skills by playing sports. If they want to win a match, they will need to work together closely. This can help them understand the importance of teamwork.
In a word, sports at school are popular now.
