Bags of Love
Last year, I worked in a middle school near my mother's house, and I stayed with her for a month. During that time, I helped her do some housework and buy some food.
After the first week, I noticed that the food was eaten up very quickly. Then I began keeping an eye on my mum. To my surprise, I found that she would put some of the food into a paper bag and go out with it at about nine every morning. And finally, I decided to follow her. I saw her taking the food to the street children. She would also spend a lot of time talking and playing with them.
One day, I talked to a neighbour and found out that my mum was wellknown in the area. The children were very friendly with her and even thought of her as their own mother. Then it hit me—why wouldn't she want to tell me about it? Was she worried that I would stop buying food if I found out?
When my mum got home, I gave her a big hug(拥抱). I told her she didn't need to keep it a secret from me. And she told me something about the children. Some of them lived with an old lady in a small house. Others slept on the street. For years, she was helping the poor street children by giving them food. After she told me everything, I was so moved by how selfless(无私的) she was. She helped others in need. As her son, I was so proud of my mum.
I continued to buy food for my mum after that. But I always added one more bag for her other children.

The Hoover Dam is one of the largest and most difficult structures ever built in the United States. The dam is in the Black Canyon，near Las Vegas，Nevada. It controls the water of the Colorado River and produces electric power.
Workers began to build the Hoover Dam in 1931.They finished it in just five years.
The Hoover Dam is 221 metres tall. It weighs more than six and one half million tons. At that time，it was the largest and tallest dam in the world，and it was one of the largest producers of electric power ever built. The Hoover Dam also created Lake Mead，the largest manmade lake in America.
Another manmade wonder of the United States was built long before the nation was set up. About 900 years ago，the ancient Indian people built villages high in the walls of valleys in Mesa Verde，Colorado. Six hundred cliff (悬崖) dwellings (住所) are now part of the Mesa Verde National Park.
Visitors can stand at the top of the mountains and look into the dwellings almost hidden in openings of the rock walls. The Indian people cut small steps into the rock. A series of such steps connected buildings with hundreds of rooms.[来源:学科网]
The rock walls have protected the buildings from bad weather in the area. So they have still mostly been unchanged in the hundreds of years since they were built.

National parks are large areas of public land. They give a safe home for local plants and animals. They help keep the air and water clean. They also give us the best trips.

It is 446 kilometers long, up to 29 kilometers wide, and 1.6 kilometers deep. The immensity of the canyon makes people think big. Every year, about 5 million people visit here. Taking a tour in the South Rim offers visitors the park's full views, while the North Rim shows beautiful wild flowers.
If you love animals, you'll like the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The “Big Five” live here. They are the lion, African elephant, African leopard, black rhinoceros and African buffalo.
