At first, the schedule is tight; the students get up 6:50 every morning and take a break after 21 o'clock in the winter. So they have to finish the work in the meal time, and sometimes they will come to school to complete it in weekend. Secondly, Jiulong temple is built in 2009, and the previous Jiulong Temple is almost disappeared now, so we have to find older people to ask, students ask their family members at first, then to find the people who most likely to know past situations of Jiulong Temple. Fortunately, the students found an old man near temple and the chair of Jiulong Temple (Jiulong are well known in the history of the temple), got a lot about past, present, and future planning developments of Jiulong Temple. Thirdly, data collection. This year's theme is Jiulong Temple, although the temple is not far from the school, we can usually get some information through interviewing, the temple is in March, so we have to bring the students together on the class to understand the information about temple fair many times.
