Great Activities for Nature Lovers

Want to get away from the stress in your daily life? Mother Nature can help us

find peace and direction in a noisy world. Here are some of the best activities to

get in touch with nature.

Hiking

One of the easiest and most accessible ways to get close to nature is by setting

out on a good old fashioned hike. Hiking generally doesn’t require any fancy

equipment or special skills; just a sturdy(结实的)pair of boots, a map, and a thirst

for adventure.

Backcountry camping

Why limit yourself to just a day hike when you can have a full weekend for longer

adventure? Backcountry camping involves packing your tent, sleeping equipment, food

3

and water on your back to set up camp in a remote location. If you’re an experienced camper, this is an excellent way to test your survival skills and explore the mysterious wilderness. Many parks require backpackers to obtain permits, so make sure to register and map your route before stepping on the trail.
Rock climbing Rock climbing is also one of the best ways to really get in touch with the natural environment. Climbing challenges your mind, tests your personal willpower, and encourages you to work with the forces of nature to accomplish your goals. You’ll definitely need to take a few rock climbing courses, and hire a guide before attempting to climb your own routes. Gardening Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to travel beyond your own backyard to experience the beauty of nature every day. If your personality is less adventurous or your mobility restricted, consider planting a garden to grow your own vegetables, fruits, herbs, or flowers. There’s something truly satisfying about mixing up a salad with fresh ingredients you grew yourself. For more information, please click here.

21. Before starting your backcountry camping, you should

.

A. ask for permission to enter the park B. take a few training courses

C. prepare a map

D. have excellent survival skills

22. Which kind of activity is suitable for people with mobility challenge?

A. Hiking.

B. Backcountry camping.

C. Rock climbing.

D. Gardening.

23. What can we infer from the passage?

A. Special skills are needed if you want to set out on a hike.

B. It is essential to hire a guide before attempting to climb.

C. Backcountry camping is an excellent way to test survival skills for every

climber.

D. To get close to nature, you must travel beyond your own backyard.

24. Where will you read the passage?

A. A website.

B. A magazine.

C. A science report.

D. A newspaper.

B

It was Mother’s Day morning last year and I was doing my shopping at our local

supermarket with my five-year-old son, Teayson. As we were leaving, we found that

only minutes earlier an elderly woman had fallen over at the entrance and had hit

her bead on the concrete. Her husband was with her, but there was blood everywhere

and the woman was embarrassed and clearly in shock.

Walking towards the scene, Tenyson became very upset about what had happened

to the couple. Ile said to me. “Mums it’s not much fun falling over in front of

everyone.”

At the front of the supermarket a charity group had set up a stand selling cooked

sausages and flowers to raise funds. Tenyson suggested that we should boy the lady

a flower. “It will make her feel better,” he said. I was amazed that he’d come

up such a sweet idea. So we went over to the flower seller and asked her if we could

buy a flower for the lady to cheer her up. “Just take it,” she replied. “I can’t

take your money for such a wonderful gesture.”

By now paramedics(救援人员) had arrived, and were attending the injured woman.

As we walked up to her, my son became intimidated by all the blood and medical

equipment. He said he was just too scared to go up to her.

Instead I gave the flower to the woman’s husband and told him. “My son was

very upset for your wife and wanted to give her this flower to make her feel better.”

At that, the old man started crying and said, “Thank you so much, you have a

wonderful son, Happy Mother’s Day to you.”

The man then bent down and gave his wife the flower, telling her who it was from.

Though badly hurt and shaken, the old lady looked up at Tenyson with love in her

eyes and gave him a little smile.

25. What does the author intend to tell us?

A. One can never be too careful.

B. Actions speak louder words.

5

C. Love begins with a little smile.

D. A small act of kindness brings a

great joy.

26. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?

A. The elderly woman was knocked down by Tenyson.

B. Tenyson’s idea of buying a flower gained his father’s support.

C. Tenyson’s care for the elderly woman puzzled the flower seller.

D. The elderly woman was moved to tears by Tenyson’s gesture.

27. The underlined word “intimidated” in the fourth paragraph probably

means

.

A. astonished B. struck C. frightened D. excited

C

With golden sunshine and a gentle breeze, autumn is the most beautiful season

in the year. This is a great time to go outside and have fun. Go to a valley to see

red maple trees, go and pick fruit in an orchard or find an open field to fly your

kite in.

However, for many high school students, these great activities may be just a

dream. With plenty of work to do, they spend all their hours indoors, struggling

for a high mark in their exams. Of course, study is one of the most important things

for teenagers. But life is definitely much more than that.

Sometimes we spend so much time studying that we forget how to make life

wonderful. In doing so, we lose the real purpose of life — to be a valuable and

happy person. To enjoy just how great it is to be alive, we have to put down our

books and pens and look around us. Students, take some exercise to improve your health,

talk with your parents and friends for understanding and walk around outside to

refresh your body and mind.

Going out and enjoying the beautiful countryside often helps our creativity

in our work. Chinese craftsman, Lu Ban, created a saw to help woodworkers. But if

he hadn’t walked outside, he would not have been inspired by a kind of toothed grass.

We could also suppose if Newton hadn’t rested under that apple tree, then he

wouldn’t have been hit by an apple, and his classic theories would not have come

6

out.

Going out is not only a break from hard work, but a chance to add to life

experience. So come on, give your brain a good rest. Step out of the books and get

your bag ready for an autumn outing. We are sure you will get much more than knowledge

from the exciting journey.

28. In which paragraph does the writer make a summary about his opinion?

A. Paragraph 1. B. Paragraph 2. C. Paragraph 5. D. Paragraph 4.

29. Why is going out a dream for many high school students?

A. They are unhappy to do so.

B. Their parents don’t allow them to do so.

C. They think study is the most important thing for them.

D. They have too much work to do for getting high marks in the exams.

30. The passage is developed mainly by

.

A. making predictions

B. reasoning and giving examples

C. describing the beautiful scenery in Autumn

D. pointing out the present situation of high school students

31. What message can you get from the passage?

A. Going out can make high school students get more.

B. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

C. The author isn’t happy with our education at all.

D. Nature is power.

D

A new keyboard can tell whether you are its owner. The keyboard records

information about the typing pattern and sends it to a computer program. The program

then checks to see if the pattern matches the right user, if not, an alarm sounds,

and the computer locks the typist out. It locks out anyone else, even if that person

knows password. What’s more, this device needs no batteries. It harvests all the

energy it needs from the action of your typing. Besides, the keyboard is also

self-cleaning and the keys are free of damage from water, oil and dirt.

7

The keys of the new keyboard are made of the same inexpensive plastic that might

be found on any other standard keyboard. But instead of being smooth, the keys have

millions of tiny plastic nanowires (纳米线) on their surface area to every key,

increasing the effective contact area between the plastic and fingers. This ensures

that there’s enough power to run the keyboard as someone types.

Liming Dai, a scientist , did not work on the new keyboard ,but he thinks the

design could be important in getting better performance from a variety of devices.”

It could also be applied to a touch screen, for instance,” Dai says. “ Then

smartphones and notepads could harvest energy from the action of someone typing or

drawing.”

“Future work might make the keyboard even more useful,” Dai adds.” A later

design might build tiny capacitors (电容器) onto the nanowires,” he suggests.

Capacitors are little devices that temporarily store electric charges. Those might

then LEDs to light a Keyboard in the dark.

Zhonglin Wang is a co-designer of the new keyboard. His team has built a working

model of the keyboard.” If a company decides to fund its production, this keyboard

could be in stores in as little as two years.” says Wang.

32. How does the new key keyboard tell whether you are its owner?

A. By checking the right user’s passwords.

B. By sending alarms to a computer program.

C. By matching the typing pattern to the right user.

D. By recording information about the typing pattern.

33. Why are there many nanowires on the surface of the keys?

A. To help produce power.

B. To make the keys beautiful.

C. To make the keys smooth.

D. To improve the speed of typing

34. What’s Dai’s attitude to the new keyboard?

A. Unconcerned

B. Positive C. Doubtful D. Critical

35. What is the best title for the text?

A New Keyboard Made of Nanowires. B. New Keyboard Powered by Typing.

C. A new Keyboard’s Future.

D. A New Keyboard entirely owned by you.

书面表达:(共 25 分) Good morning, dear teachers and classmates. I feel lucky to stand here on behalf of the graduates to make a speech at the
graduation ceremony. Firstly, I want to express my heartfelt thanks to our respected teachers who
devoted all their energies to educating us in the past three years. With their help, we have developed not only in ability and knowledge but also in body and character.
Secondly, on behalf of all graduates, I want to say thank you to our school—you provide us with such good studying facilities and environments, in which we all have had three happy years.
In the near future, we are unfolding a new page in our life, and we will try our best to work hard to reward our school and society. I am sure our school will be proud of us one day!
That’s all for my speech, Thanks for your listening.
听力原文 Text 1 M: Where can I find a good cup of coffee around here? My friends told me Seattle
15

has great coffee. W: Well, there’s a place called Union Coffee that my sister told me about. (1)
I’ll look up the address on my phone. Text 2 M: When is your family leaving for vacation? I know that school is almost finished
for the year. W: You’re right. The kids only have one more week of school, and we’re leaving
a week after that. (2) We will stay in Florida for three weeks. We’re all so excited! Text 3 W: What’s taking you so long? I just wanted you to read this piece of news and then give the magazine back to me so we could talk about it. (3) M: Sorry, Judy. I was going to, but then I saw this interesting story. I wish I could keep this magazine. Text 4 M: Fish again? We had fish yesterday at school. And we had it for supper two days ago. And I had a wonderful fish sandwich the day before that for lunch. (4) W: Sorry, Jim. I’ll make something different. We’ve got some pork I need to use soon. Text 5 M: Excuse me. Can you tell me where the nonfiction section is? I need to borrow a book about butterflies. (5) W: It’s over there. We also have a science section over here. When you’re ready to check out, come to the front desk. Text 6 W: It was a crazy crowd at the baseball game today. (6) Why was everyone so upset? M: Well, the home team played terribly, and most of the fans paid a lot of money to see that game. (6) W: I can understand that, I guess, but there were people throwing garbage onto the field and yelling at the players. M: If you think that’s bad, you should go watch a soccer match in England. Europeans are very aggressive during games. A lot of times, fights break out in the stands. W: Really? Wow, that seems a little unnecessary. It’s just a game, after all. (7) M: I agree. I find it unfair to blame it on the athletes. They are all trying their best. Text 7 M: Jane, the new swimming pool is open at the Student Center. Let’s go experience it! (8) W: I’d like to, Tom, but I have a paper due on Friday, and I haven’t even started it yet. M: Just an hour. W: I do need the exercise, but I just can’t spare the time. M: Okay, how about dinner at the Grill? You have to eat something, and it’s right by the library. I’ll go over there with you after dinner, and you can do your research while I study for my tomorrow’s test. (9) W: That would be nice, but... M: Look, we really wouldn’t be wasting any time. We’d just be doing everything
16

we need to do. W: Okay. I’ll meet you at the Grill about six. Is that all right? M: Great. Text 8 M: Hi, Mrs. Martin! Guess what?! I’ve decided that I want to play a sport. I’m
thinking about joining one of the teams at school. W: That’s a great idea, Joe! Which sport do you want to play? M: I’m not sure which one I’d be good at. I can run really fast, (10) but I’m
not very good at throwing or catching a ball. W: Hmm, well, you probably shouldn’t play baseball or football, then. And you
wouldn’t be very good at basketball, either. M: Is there a swim team? Maybe I’d be better at that. W: We were supposed to have a swim team this year, but we didn’t get enough money.
(11) I’m sorry, Joe! M: Oh well. I guess I can find something else to do. Thanks for your advice. W: No problem. Maybe we can look at the different clubs on campus you could join
instead. (12) Can you come back to see me after class? I’ll be in the School Volunteers office. Text 9 W: This is the last apartment we have in your price range, (13) and it is by far the nicest of the three. You can see it has a great view over the city, and it is a good price considering its place. M: Wow, that’s a great view over the harbor! (13) W: Isn’t it? And it’s got everything — washing machine, dryer, dishwasher…you name it. M: Hmm. I wonder how I would get my furniture all the way up to the 13th floor, though. W: There’s an elevator for that. M: Okay. What about the bills? (14) W: Heating and water are included in the rent, although electricity, cable TV, and Internet access are not. (14) Rent is $3000 per month. (15) M: All right. The first place we looked at included everything, correct? The basement suite? (15) W: Yes, although prices are a little different outside the city. That’s why it’s $1600 cheaper. (15) M: I see. And the studio? (16) That was $2000 a month, right? W: Yes, but I seem to remember you saying you were worried about the noise at night, due to all the bars close by. (16) M: True. (16) Well, I have a lot to think about. Thank you for your time. Text 10 Thank you for listening to my presentation on Dolly Parton today. I’m not using a PowerPoint, so you might want to take a few notes because I’m going to tell you some interesting things. Let’s start with her background. Yes, many country singers start out from poor backgrounds, but Dolly Parton’s family was so poor that when she was born, her father paid the doctor with a bag of corn. She loved singing, but when she was asked to sing on a local TV show, her mean classmates locked her in the classroom so she would miss her chance. (17) She moved to Nashville after high school and got a job writing songs, (18) though she is most recognized for

her performance skills now. Being famous hasn’t always been easy, of course. Even if she changes her hair and clothing style, people always recognize her voice. (19) But unlike some stars, she has kept close to her home. She started a business in the poor city where she was born, and she also started a program that gives free books to poor children. If this information sounds too strange to be true, you should look it up and read about this interesting country singer yourself. (20) I hope you’ll all be inspired by knowing more about her life story.
