                                 Acting It Out

                  Situation 1 — Shall we donate?
        One of our neighboring countries has suffered a severe earthquake.
        Student A and B are talking about donation for the victims. A thinks
        that the best way to show our concern is to help, no matter whether
        they are family members or strangers. However, B holds that people
        in poor rural China deserves our help better. He doesn’t feel the
        obligation to help people in other country. If their government can
        spend millions of dollars to develop weapons,
        they should not ask for aids from
        international community.

                                 Fun Time

                  Reference 2: Main idea of the story
        There is a quiet, silent killer that‘s lurking (潜伏) about in
        the trees, along the Horseshoe Lake 's edge. The cause is
        the high concentrations of carbon dioxide. Around 100
        tons of the gas escapes around Horseshoe Lake each day,
        raising the level of carbon dioxide in the soil up to 95 times
        normal levels. At a concentration level of around 1 percent,
        carbon dioxide causes dizziness, headaches and
        hallucinations (幻觉). Above 17 percent, unconsciousness
        and death happens in a matter of seconds.


                                                                        8
