(2015·苏南高三4月联考)Forest Schools originated in Sweden in the 1950s and spread to other countries, particularly Denmark where they have become an important part of the Danish early years program.
In a typical Danish Forest School, young children from 3 years are taken into the forest for 4 hours each day of the week. They take no toys with them, but instead use only what the forest provides (and their imaginations) to develop their games. There is a primitive hut in the forest, which is used in extreme weather. Activities are childled and fun, such as finding small animals or stomping in puddles. Because of high adult to child ratios, children can safely try out activities which are often considered too dangerous, such as climbing trees or lighting fires, and by dressing the children in good protective clothing, they are able to play freely. By setting children small manageable tasks at which they are unlikely to fail, and giving genuine praise, children?s independence and confidence grow.
A Swedish scientific study found that children in the Forest School are more balanced and socially capable, have fewer sick days, are more able to concentrate and have better coordination than the city nursery children. The primary reason appeared to be the greater opportunities to play in nature, so that children play for longer at a time, tending not to disturb each other as much as children in the city nursery.The study observed that where children were interrupted, they became irritable, their stress level rose, and their ability to concentrate fell.
The study also showed that the Forest School children had 25% fewer sick days than the city children. One reason for this is that the air is nearly always better outside than indoors. Outside a child is not so exposed to virus and bacteria and not so likely to be infected by other children. Another reason may be that, since stress has been shown to have a negative effect on the immune system, high stress levels may be weakening the city children. The Forest School children, on the other hand are in a pleasant, natural, fun and less stressful environment.

A.To enrich the children’s imagination.

D.To store daily necessities.

A.they have more interesting things to do
B.they are accompanied by adults
C.they are not disturbed so often
D.they are playing in small groups
4.What does the last paragraph intend to tell us?
A.Why the Forest School children are healthier.
B.The Forest School children have a healthy diet.
C.What affects the city children.

(2015·徐州第三次质检)SANTA MONICA, Calif. (KABC) — A Santa Monica High School teacher who was put on leave after using physical force to control a student who was selling marijuana (大麻) in his classroom has received surprising support on Facebook. The incident was captured on video and has caused a sudden reaction from parents, teachers, students and even graduates. They are showing their support for Black. A Facebook page supporting “Coach Black” has over 4,700 likes. And many want him back in the classroom.
Student witnesses say Mark Black, who is also the wrestling coach, tried to confiscate (没收) a bag of marijuana and was then injured by the student with a pencil. The cellphone video shows Black locking the student?s legs and pinning the student to the ground.“He just wanted him to stop and he was trying to be a teacher and help, and I don?t think it was his fault.”said student Kylan Townsend.
School Board member Oscar De La Torre says Mr. Black is one of his teachers at Santa Monica High School. “I know him very well. I know him to be a fair person, a good person，someone who cares deeply about his students，” said De La Torre. He says that the video does not tell the whole story and that the incident brings to light the issue of drug use, something the district needs to address.
But in an email to parents, Santa MonicaMalibu Unified School District Superintendent Sandra Lyon says the teacher’s behavior is “absolutely alarming”. She put Black on leave during an independent investigation.
Lyon has come under fire from parents for initially saying the kind of physical action used by the teacher was unacceptable. On Saturday, Lyon released the following statement to Eyewitness News：“I want to stress that teachers are at times confronted with difficult, even threatening situations, and they must make judgment calls to protect safety. I want to emphasize that putting the teacher who was involved in this incident on leave until completion of an independent investigation is a matter of standard policy and practice; it in no way prejudices the outcome of the investigation. ”
Students hope the situation will have a quick and just resolution. An online petition (请愿书) has also been created by one of Black’s former students. The petition has already gained thousands of signatures.
Black did not respond to a request for comment.

2.选B句意：去年平均降雨18.75厘米，这是自从1850年加利福尼亚成为一个州以来最干燥的一年。an average of “平均的……”;a number of“许多”，修饰可数名词;an amount of“大量的”，修饰不可数名词;a quantity of“大量的”，修饰可数或不可数名词均可。

4.选B句意：一到动物园，孩子们就迫不及待地去看动物。upon/on doing sth. “一……就……”。
6.选B句意：众所周知，当每一分钟都被充分利用来学习功课，将会使学生受益匪浅。从句中 every minute 是主语，will benefit 是谓语动词，中间插入了时间状语，when 后省略了 it is, to study the lessons 表示目的，不是作 make use of 的宾语，故选B。
7.选C句意：我很久没有看见安了以至我都忘了她长什么样了。so/such ... that ...“如此……以至……”;so修饰形容词或副词;such修饰名词。
8.选B句意：这个女生回答问题时声音太小了，以至老师不得不努力地去听。struggle to do sth.“努力地做某事”。teacher与listen to之间是主动关系，故用不定式的主动形式。listen to sb.“听某人说话”，listen只表示听这一动作，是及物动词。
9.选D句意：由于一直都在专心搞研究并且觉得真的很累了，教授决定要好好休息一下。根据句意可知，第一空是考查“be devoted to”的用法，此处是过去分词作原因状语，the professor与find是主动关系，故第二个空用现在分词作原因状语。
10.选D句意：凡是被控告杀死国家保护的动物的人都将会被判坐牢。sb. be charged with sth. “某人因某事而被控告……”。in charge of“负责”，不合语境。
