Although protecting wildlife may seem too hard at times, even small actions in your own neighbourhood can help protect many different animals. Here are some tips on how to protect wildlife through small actions.
1.Create wildlife friendly areas in your backyard.
When trying to make your garden more beautiful , you can choose plants that can provide food and shelter to native wildlife . This will also help cut down on pollution . Add bird or bat houses to your yard or garden to attract and shelter these species.
2. Avoid harming the natural ecosystem ( 生态系统 ) in your area.
Some plants from other places can kill or harm native plants that provide food and shelter for wildlife.
By using less water and fewer fuels, you will be helping to protect the wildlife around you . Take buses or the subway when you can, turn off electric devices when you’re not using them , take shorter shower, and keep your room temperature at or below 68 degrees during the winter.
4. Buy products that are wildlife friendly
Don’t buy products that are made from endangered animals. Keep in mind that some endangered animals are killed by traps , catches or hunters who are after other wildlife within the same habitat.
5. Donate money or time to organizations that protect wildlife and their habitats.
You can give money to organization or groups that protect wildlife species in your neighbourhood. 56. We infer that the purpose of this passage is to ________. A. tell us why protecting wildlife is extremely important now B. suggest that we protect wildlife through actions C. explain why protecting wildlife is not as hard as people think. D. give us some tips on how to protect wildlife through small actions 57. Which of the following threats to wildlife is NOT mentioned in the passage ? A. Animal diseases B. Loss of habitat C. Pollution D. Hunters 58. What’s the best title for the third point ? A. Have a greener lifestyle. B. Use less water and fewer fuels. C. Take a bus when you go out . D. Try a new kind of life. 59. The writer suggests that we _________. A. not buy products made from animals B. share cars with others when we go out C. grow as many kinds of plants in our gardens as possible D. provide shelters for birds and bats in our gardens or yards 60. In which section of a newspaper would you most probably read this passage ? A. Environment B. Teaching C. Business D. Geography B In a movie, a woman reads a storybook to her friend’s daughter. As they approach the last page, she reads, “… and Cinderella and the prince lived happily ever after.” She closes the book and looks at the young girl, adding, “ You know, things don’t always happen like this in real life, I just think you should know that now.” We were all raised on fairy tales with glass slippers, brave princes and magic! It didn’t take too long to realize that stories like that aren’t necessarily true. In real life, you learn that glass slippers are really uncomfortable, no prince is perfect and magic doesn’t always work. So what do you do when the way you planned things is not the way they turned out? Know that parts of your fairy tale have already been written, and sadly, there’s not much you can do about those first few chapters. You didn’t get the best start. Your trust was unexpectedly betrayed (背叛). You didn’t get the job. Whatever falls and failures happened in your past, there’s still more to the story. Your life has a lot of contributors (投稿者), and you are the editor-in-chief. You take what’s there and create the masterpiece (杰作). All the good pages and the bad can come together to make a beautiful adventure. When you find yourself wishing your life was more like the fairy tales, remember that in some ways it already is. There will be dragons, bad witches, great romances, winding roads and friends to help you along the way. Live your life carefully and positively as if you are writing a long story. Whether it’s a comedy, tragedy or a little of both, the pen is in your hand. How it ends is all up to
you. 61. According to the first paragraph, we know the woman is __________. A. wise B. cruel C. brave D. patient 62. Why does the author raise the question in Paragraph 3? A. To compare different ideas B. To express the doubts of life. C. To introduce points for discussion. D. To describe the conditions in real life 63. It can be learnt from the passage that _________. A. friends can always be a great help in life B. there is a perfect prince waiting in your life C. magic can work at any time once you gain it D. glass slippers are both beautiful and comfortable 64. Which of the following may NOT often appear in fairy tales? A. Glass slippers B. Winding roads C. Sad endings D. Bad witches. 65. What is the message conveyed in the passage? A. Be positive about life B. Write your own stories. C. Parents should tell fairy tales to their kids D. There are many problems in school education C
Oldest , Youngest , or in the Middle ?
Were you the first or last child in your family ? Or were you a middle or the only child ? Some people think it matters where you were born in your family . But there are different ideas about what birth order means. Some people say that oldest children are smart and strong-willed.They are very likely to be successful . The reason for this is simple . Parents have a lot of time for their first child . They give him or her a lot of attention . So this child is very likely to do well . An only child will succeed for the same reasons. What happens to the other children in a family ? Middle children don’t get so much attention . So they don’t feel that important. If a family has many children , the middle ones sometimes get lost in the crowd. The youngest child , though , often gets special treatment . He or she is the “baby” . Often this child grows up to be funny and charming. Do you believe these ideas about birth order? A recent study saw things quite differently . This study found that the first children believed in family rules. They didn’t take many chances in their lives.They usually followed their own ideas . They took chances . And they often did better in life. Which theory about birth order do you believe ? Look at your own family or you friends’ families . Decide which idea fits what you see. 66. This passage is about __________. A. why the oldest children in a family usually succeed B. why some children refuse to follow orders C. ways in which birth order may affect how children grow up D. how people have a lot of trouble agreeing about ideas 67. According to the article, some people think that youngest children grow up to be ________. A. babies B. not capable of doing anything C. funny and charming D. strong leaders 68. If later-born children take chances rather than following rules, you might expect them to be________. A. jealous B. creative C. spoiled D. obedient employees 69. The statement that middle children “ sometimes get lost in the crowd”means that _________. A. they have a poor sense of direction
B. they don’t get a lot of attention C. they have a strong desire to be leaders D. they can’t get along with others 70. The underlined word “ theory “ means ________. A. idea B. comparison C. evidence D. surprise D There is an old saying about volunteer work that goes like this: “ No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.” Today, many people volunteer their time and energy to help others. There are a lot of ways to meet other people’s needs. For example, some volunteers provide help after a disaster. Others are happy to get dirty while repairing homes or planting trees or flowers in poor neighborhoods. Young people see suffering and loneliness around them and find ways to help. And history lovers help archeologists(考古学家) search for ancient objects to help deepen our knowledge of the past. Volunteers work in many areas around the world, including Haiti. More than two years have passed since a 7.0 earthquake shook the nation. The exact number of people who died may never be known. Thousands of survivors of the Haitian earthquakes still live in temporary(临时的) shelters. Last year, former American President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn joined five hundred volunteers in the town of Leogane to build houses. Organizations do not have to be large to get volunteers. An activist group in Dharamsala, India is a good example, Jodie Underhill from England arrived in northern India several years ago. She planned to volunteer for an environmental project. She could almost not believe how much rubbish was ruining some of the area’s most beautiful sights. Jodie Underhill learned about how to deal with the rubbish while taking part in other volunteer projects. But soon enough she formed her own group, Mountain Cleaners. Jodie Underhill says the work is very hard. But she praises the group’s efforts as a wonderful experience. The young Englishwoman says the Indian media started calling her “Garbage Girl”. And she says she was pleased with the name. American teenagers also volunteer in many ways . 71. The first paragraph serves as a(n) ___________. A. explanation B. introduction C. comment D. background 72. What did former American President Jimmy Carter do as a volunteer? A. He planted trees and flowers in Haiti. B. He gave some money to the poor in Haiti. C. He helped archeologists search for ancient objects. D. He helped to build houses after the earthquake in Haiti 73. What do we know about Jodie Underhill according to the text? A. She was born in Dharamsala B. She formed her own group to make money. C. She mainly works on dealing with rubbish. D. She was called “ Garbage Girl” by Americans. 74. What can we learn from the text? A. It is difficult for small organizations to get volunteers. B. The number of people died in Haiti’s earthquake is unclear. C. Most of the volunteers are good at collecting money. D. History lovers mainly learn about history from ancient objects. 75. What is most likely to be discussed in the paragraph that follows? A. How to join in a volunteer group B. Why people offer their services to others C. The benefits that volunteers can gain D. The volunteer work that American teenagers do.
第 II 卷（共 35 分）
第一节：阅读表达（共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 阅读下面短文并回答问题，然后将答案写到相应的位置上（请注意问题后的字数要求） 。
 “Why do I have to go to bed?” you ask, “Sleep is boring, and I’m not even tired!”  But sleep is more important than you may think. Maybe you can think of a time when you didn’t get enough sleep. That feeling is awful and, when you feel that way, you’re not at your best. So if you’re not too tired, let’s talk about sleep.  An average kid has a busy day. There’s school, taking care of pets, running around with friends, going to sports practice or other activities, and doing homework. It’s tiring just writing them down. By the end of the day, your body needs a break. Sleep allows your body to rest for the next day.  Everything that’s alive needs sleep to survive. Even your dog or cat curls up for naps. Animals sleep for the same reason as you do --- to give the body a tiny rest.  Not only is sleep necessary for your body, but it’s also important for your brain. Though no one is exactly sure what work the brain does when he’s asleep, some scientists think that the brain sorts through and stores information, replaces chemicals, and solves problems while you sleep.  Most kids between 5 and 12 get about 9.5 hours’ sleep a night, but experts agree that most need 10 or 11 hours’ sleep each night. Sleep is an individual thing and some kids need more than others.  When your body doesn’t have enough hours to rest, you may feel tired, or you may be unable to think clearly. You might have a hard time following directions, or you might have an argument with a friend over something really stupid.  One more reason to __________: if you don’t, you may not grow well. That’s right and researchers believe too little sleep can affect your growth and immune system --- which keeps you from getting sick. 76. What is the main idea of the text? (no more than 8 words) _______________________________________________________________________________ 77. What does the underlined word “them” in Paragraph 3 refer to? (no more than 6 words) _______________________________________________________________________________ 78. Complete the following statement with proper words. (no more than 3 words) Sleep is of great importance for _____________as well as for your body. 79. What does the brain do when we sleep according to some scientists ? (no more than 12 words) _______________________________________________________________________________ 80. Fill in the blank in the last paragraph with proper words.

In order to test our knowledge or abilities,we have had many exams. We have both achieved success and suffered from failure. Of course these successes and failures will bring us joys and sorrow. In face of failure students take different attitudes. Some students are anxious when they don’t do well in the exams. They usually lose heart and no longer study as before.Giving up study is their choice. But most students take an active attitude towards failure. Though they fail in the exams, they encourage themselves to be confident and turn to teachers for help. They find out and analyze the cause so that they will no longer make similar mistakes. Besides, they set the goal for the next exam and make an effort to catch up with others. I agree with those with active attitudes. As we all know, failure is the mother of success. Even great men have failed many times before they succeed. So we must deal with our failure correctly.

I always say hello to her, but she never says a word. Maybe she doesn’t like young people. I had a party a few days ago. It really wasn’t very noisy. About ten of us were here until 11:00 and then we went out to a club. When I saw Mrs Snell the next day, I said I hoped there wasn’t too much noise, but as usual she didn’t say anything. Funny lady.
