4. Problems We Had To Overcome
This was our first time to attend the webpage match with the theme of ” local special product”. When the teacher mentioned the chaotian walnut, we were surprised for its use. Our teacher told us that if we don´t talk with other people there will be no information about the walnut. So we just took this attitude to attend. It was easy just to observe the walnut, but we didn’t find something special. So we went into the internet to find some material but we failed. When we felt depressed, we decided to go visit the forest bureau. The staff there were very warm. They explained to us interesting details and provided valuable materials. We really opened our horizon and then became confident. Though we met some problems during our visit, we were trying to overcome. Looking at our webpage, we are very excited because it is our rime of our work.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
It is said that life is beautiful as long as you can find it. We want to say that we live with walnuts but we didn’t realize them. From here , we can see that the students should not only read, but also be careful with life and observation. Our horizon should not be limited to books, but also include the news after school to know more about the homeland history and economy. We will widen our sight. The webpage making is same as learning. We, indeed, gain a lot from this webpage match.
