教室里养鱼、剩饭变肥料……在这个"绿色"学校里,还有什么是不可能的?



词数 258 建议阅读时间 6分钟




DO you raise salmon (大马哈鱼) in your classroom at school? Do you ever have class while floating down (漂流) a river in a boat? Do you ever throw your school lunch leftovers into a compost bin (肥料箱)?

Probably not. But it's all part of a normal school day at Barnard Environmental Studies Magnet School in Connecticut, US. The school is known as a "green" school.

Being green means that "everything in the building is designed with the environment in mind," said Marjorie Drucker, a teacher at Barnard.

For example, the lights go off when people leave the room. Then special windows provide light. It helps cut down on the need for electric lighting. When a window is open, the air-conditioner automatically (自动地) turns off.

Saving energy is not all that students do. Students found out that there were fewer and fewer salmon in rivers. They decided to do something to help out-they raised more salmon.

In the classrooms there are big fish tanks filled with salmon eggs. The eggs are kept in water at 2C. When the young salmon have grown, students put them into the river.

Composting is another part of taking care of the environment at Barnard. Students throw the leftovers from their lunches into a compost bin in a greenhouse. There the food becomes fertile soil (沃土) and can be used to help grow plants.

Most students' dream jobs are about helping the environment.

"When I grow up I want to be a scientist, because I want to study different kinds of animals," said Crystal, a girl.

Your turn: discussion

Do you think it would be a good idea to have a 'green' school in China?
