“The morning when the mist will rest, the night when the moonlight is like water, the peak that blocks out the sun, the river and sea with fierce waves… Everything in the world is beautiful.” The ancient proses and poems unit guides us through the magnificent Three Gorges, the vast desert, the yellow crane tower surrounded by white clouds. When appreciating the natural scenery, the students obtained the enjoyment of beauty, purified their hearts, stimulated their love for the great rivers and mountains of their ancestral country, and cultivated their noble sentiments.
From their study of these natural scenery poems, the students were eager to write down their descriptive words. Grade 7 used their newly-learned skills to illustrate the beauty and richness of the scenery in front of them using language.
We take “Outside the window” as the title to inspire students to pay attention to the scenery outside the window – the window of their home, the window of the classroom, or the window of the train. They will see how the four seasons rotate and the morning and dusk alternate. The flowers, trees, and pond can all be captured in the small, square window. How uniquely charming!
