Look at the light and beautiful snowflakes(雪花)falling.Ever wanted to hold them in your hands?They are always lost when they meet your hands.

Well,this isn’t just a problem for you.It was a problem for Wilson Bentley,too.In the 1870s,Wilson Bentley was just a teenager.His family lived in a small town in northeast America.Winters there were long and hard.Bentley’s mother was once a school teacher.

Winter is a time for many exciting sports: sledding (雪橇), skating and skiing. Skating and skiing needs lots of skills (技巧). Sledding gives you good exercise and is lots of fun!

A sled looks like a boat. It can move easily over snow or ice. Early sleds were made of wood. Now some better sleds are made of glass.

Sleds can be pulled by animals. In some very cold parts of the world, people make animals like dogs, horses, and reindeer (驯鹿) pull goods or people in sleds. People also sled for sports and fun. Driving a sled does not need much skill. The driver gives a kick (踢) in the snow to start the sled. He or she can also ask someone else for help. In a sled, there can be one person or several.

Usually, you have to lie on your back, feet first in a sled. As you travel, you move your body and feet to keep it in the right direction (方向).

There is a special sled called the skeleton sled (骨架雪橇). It’s very different. On a skeleton, you lie on your stomach and drive the sled in a head-first way. It is very fast! Many are afraid to ride it. But once they try it they want to do it again!

5. On a skeleton sled, the driver lies on his stomach and travels in a head-first way. It’s fast but exciting.

Like many other animals, swallows will fly south when the days turn cold and the leaves from trees begin to fall. They travel many miles to find a warmer winter. This type of travel is called migration (迁徙).

Birds are animals that like to migrate a lot when it is cold. About 600 out of 9,000 kinds of birds do it. They leave in autumn and come back during the warm spring months.

Many birds don’t like the cold. They need food, but plants die and insects (昆虫) hide in winter. So, they’ll only come home the next year, when there will be plenty of food for them to eat.

But the trip is often hard and not safe. Many birds fly in groups and make noises. Cranes (鹤) fly in groups like the letter V, or in a row. Others travel in pairs or alone.

Some can travel a very long way. They fly between lands. For example, the Arctic tern (北极燕鸥) can travel 20,100 kilometres. They build a home near the North Pole (北极), go to the Antarctic (南极洲) in autumn, and then come back in spring. How do the birds find their way? They look at things like the sun, moon and stars. They never get lost.

During the cold winter days you may find it hard to wake up in the morning. It’s warm and cozy (舒适的) in your bed.

In winter, many animals like to sleep, too. But their sleeps can be very long and deep. This kind of sleep is called hibernation (冬眠). During this kind of sleep, their temperatures go down, and hearts beat (跳动) slowly. They take very small breaths.

Animals can hibernate for part or all of the winter. It’s hard for them to find things to eat. When they go to sleep, they don’t need much food.

Bears, hedgehogs (刺猬) and chipmunks (花栗鼠) go to sleep in their homes. Frogs and snakes hibernate, too. Frogs move into the earth under water to keep themselves warm.

Before they go to sleep, they eat a lot to get fat (脂肪). Some also keep food in their homes to eat later.

Bears are the biggest animals that hibernate. They often sleep in caves (山洞). Bears must eat a lot of things like nuts before going to sleep for a long time. They eat as much as 300 apples ( that’s the same as 60 hamburgers) each day for many weeks. They can eat for 20 hours in a day!

Bears can go into a very deep sleep. It can last from three months to half a year. During that time they do not eat, drink or go to the toilet. A mother bear can give birth to babies during her hibernation.

Other animals sleep less. Sometimes they wake up to eat, or take a walk. Then they go to sleep again.

School kids Say Goodbye to Their Flying Friends

Jin Jun and his classmates at Shanghai Nanyang Middle School are not very happy to be back from holiday.

Not because they hate studying, but because some of their best friends on campus(校园) are gone: pigeons.

More than 100 pigeons used to(过去常常) fly around campus every day, making students smile during break time.But now, the birds are gone. Where? Now they’re all locked up in a bird cage.

Students in Beijjng Fengtai Experimental Primary School also gave their pigeons to the local health department (当地卫生部门)on February 3.

Their pigeons are special birds. In 1999, students found two injured pigeons and gave them a home. To get money for bird food, the kids sold rubbish paper They took good care of the birds, and five years later, those two pigeons had become 265!

“Cool” is a word with many meanings. Its old meaning is used to express a temperature(温度) that is a little bit cold. As the world has changed, the word has had many different meanings.

“Cool” can be used to express feelings of interest in almost anything. When you see a famous car in the street, maybe you’ll say, “It’s cool.” You may think “he’s so cool ” when you see your favorite footballer.

We all maximize(扩大) the meaning of “cool”. You can use it instead of many words such as “new” or “surprising”. Here’s an interesting story we can use to show the way how the word is used. A teacher asked her students to write about the waterfall(瀑布) they had visited. On one student’s paper was just one sentence(句子), “It’s so cool.” Maybe he thought it was the best way to show what he saw and felt.

But the story also shows a scarcity(缺乏) of words. Without “cool”, some people have no words to show the same meaning. So it is quite important to keep some credibility(可信性). Can you think of many other words that make your life colorful as the word “cool”? I can. And I think they are also very cool.

( ) 1. We know that the word “cool” has _______.

A. only one meaning B. no meaning

C. many different meanings D. the same meaning

( ) 2. In the passage, the word “express” means “___________”.

A. see B. show C. know D. feel

( ) 3. If you are ______ something, you may say “It’s cool.”

A. interested in B. angry about C. afraid of D. unhappy with

( ) 4. The writer takes an example to show he is ______ the way the word is used.

A. pleased with B. strange to C. worried about D. careful with

( ) 5. In the passage, the writer suggests(暗示) that the word “cool”_________.

A. can be used instead of many words

B. usually means something interesting
