B My friend, Peg, and I were seeking evidence that there were people who were treating our
soil, our waters, our air with the love and respect they deserved. And we found it. One day we saw a busload of school children on an outing. The bus had stopped at a hamburger stand where we were having a rest, and half-a-hundred children poured out. Busloads of children, of course, were not new, and I hardly gave them more than a glance until I realized what they were doing. Chatting and laughing, the children were picking up as much waste as they could carry from around the stand and its parking area. They took the waste to their bus, where several bags had been brought out for the waste. Within five minutes, before our astonished eyes, that parking lot had been picked clean. Impressed, I walked over to their teacher. "I'm interested," I began. "In fact, I'm surprised at how those kids worked this place over. Is this some kind of environment protection class?" "You'd never guess it," he said, "but we're a history class. " "A history class?" "That's right. We're on our way from Boston to visit Fort(城堡) Ticonderoga. Before the trip, one of the things we tried to find out was how the Ticonderoga countryside looked back in old days," he said. "In fact, we made a little table display of the scene, using toy buildings and toy trees. When one kid jokingly suggested we ought to put a few bottles and cans around to make it look real, the others blamed him. But the boy argued that he bet Ticonderoga would look like that today. Besides, if they thought it was so funny, were they prepared to clean it up if he was right? The class decided, however, that the entire fort might be too big a task to do. But they agreed to clean up any roadside area where they stopped on their way to the fort. And so that's what they did!" 41. How did the author feel when he understood what the kids were doing? A. Amazed. C. Disappointed. B. Bored. D. Unconcerned.
42. Why were the students going to Fort Ticonderoga? A. To learn history. B. To go outing for fun. C. To clean the roads to the fort. D. To protect the environment there. 43. The underlined word "display" in the last paragraph refers to__________. A. plan B. show C. cloth D. game
C An astronaut is required to make some repairs to the outside of the International Space Station. After a successful repair, the astronaut finishes the task. Unfortunately, a tool flies off into space. The tool has now become space junk, high-speed pieces of objects(物体) going around the
Earth at 17,000 kilometers per hour. While humans produce an unbelievable amount of waste on Earth, we might not think too much about space junk. But NASA says there are probable millions of objects, both small and large, going around the Earth in a giant cloud of junk. Space junk got its start in the middle of the twentieth century, at the very beginning of the space race, when satellite began to be launched to go into orbit (轨道) around the Earth. So far, space junks include waste spaceships and waste spaceship parts, rocket fuel containers and even pieces of paint. Believe or not, there are millions of tiny pieces of paint floating around Earth's orbit. Heat or crashes usually cut off paint from spaceship and turn them into space junk. Because there are so many objects flying around up there, there's concern that crashes between space junks will only produce more of them. Scientists are worried this is already happening. Anything travelling at a high speed in space would cause a considerable amount of damage to a spaceship if a direct hit happened. Even a small piece of paint is capable of making a quarter-inch hole into the window of a space station. The good news for astronauts is that most space junk is located between 550 and 625 miles above the Earth——the International Space Station flies in orbit at 250 miles high, while spaceships usually only reach 375 miles above the Earth. Space programs are also working on rocket designs that limit the amount of space junk produced during a launch. For those of us on the Earth, is there a possibility that space junk could fall back to the ground? Everything in orbit will finally be pulled back down by Earth's gravity—when that happens depends on how high the object is and how fast it's going. The higher the object is, the longer the object will take to fall. These objects could stay in orbit for thousands of years. As for the risks of getting hit on the head, fortunately, most objects burn up on their way back to the Earth, and no one has ever been killed by space junk. 44. Where is space junk from? A. Pieces from satellites. B. Fuel coming from rockets. C. Waste from the space station. D. Spaceships that no longer work. 45. What are scientists worried about space junk? A. It may rub off the spaceship's outside paint. B. It may be pulled back by gravity and hurt people. C. More space junks will probably be produced in crashes. D. The space station's windows may be blocked by space junk. 46. Where is the passage probably taken from? A. Astronauts' travel diary.
B. Scientists' research report. C. Popular science magazine. D. Adventure novel.

are not National Geographic material, because they will get better with time. A. So this is the most important. B. But that is only true in a way. C. Its quality has increased a lot. D.

第三节（共 3 小题；每小题 2 分，共 6 分） 阅读短文，根据短文回答问题，并将答案写在答题纸相应位置。每小题答案不多于 15 个单词。 Would you ever hug a stranger? There's actually a social activity of offering hugs to strangers
in public places. It's known as the Free Hugs Campaign. The hugs are meant to be random(随机 的) acts of kindness—selfless acts performed just to make others feel better. The person offering the hugs often makes a sign that reads "FREE HUGS", then holds it up in the street and waits for someone to ask for a hug.
The activity was started by Australian Juan Mann in 2004. Juan had been living in London for almost 10 years when he decided to return to Sydney after his girlfriend decided to leave him. On landing, he had nothing but his suitcase. After about three months, an old friend invited him to a party. In an interview with WHO magazine, Juan said that while he was at the party, "... a completely random person I didn't know came up to me and gave me a hug. I felt like a king! It was the greatest thing that ever happened. " Then, he had an idea. On 30th June 2004, Juan made a sign with the words FREE HUGS and offered his first hugs in the center of the main shopping district in Sydney. "For the first 15 minutes, people just stared right through me. But then a woman tapped me on the shoulder and told me she needed a hug as one of her relatives had passed away," said Juan. Things really took off after a FREE HUGS video was uploaded to YouTube. While in Sydney, Juan met an American musician, Shimon Moore, who filmed Juan giving away free hugs and later used what he had shot to make a music video for the song All the Same by his band The Sick Puppies. The video was later uploaded to YouTube, where it has been viewed over 70 million times. As a result of the video, the Free Hugs activity became international and then developed to China, Italy, America, Switzerland, Norway, India, Portugal and the UK. An International Free Hugs Day was set on the first Saturday following 30th June as this was the date of the first time that Juan ever offered free hugs in Sydney. 52. What is the purpose of the Free Hugs Campaign? 53. What gave Juan Mann the idea of offering free hugs? 54. How did Shimon Moore help Juan's activity become well-known?

七、书面表达（共 1 题；共 10 分） One possible version: Dear Lucy， I've learned about your recent learning task. Studying festival is interesting and meaningful. If you intend to study one of the Chinese festivals, I suggest that you consider the Chinese Spring Festival. I recommend it to you because it has a long history and is the most important festival to us Chinese. And you can not only learn Chinese culture, but also dip into Chinese history. As we know, it is celebrated on the first day of Chinese lunar month. People celebrate it for the coming of the spring. It is also a time for family reunion, which has a special meaning to everyone of us. Usually, family members will have a feast and set off fireworks together. Since China is large in area, the custom of the Spring Festival varies in different areas in China. I believe you'll learn a lot of interesting stories about the Chinese Spring Festival if you start your research on it. Best wishes!
