Last week my fourth grade students went to Chr Shang, at the north end of Taitung County. The fourth grade classes are usually my favorites, so I figured it would be an easy day. 上個星期我們四年級的學生去台東縣北部的池上鄉. 四年級的班是我最喜歡的, 所以我覺得這一次的戶外教學應該會很輕鬆.
Unfortunately it was very cold and very rainy in Chr Shang that day, and as a result this field trip was really, really, really, really, really not fun. It was, in fact, the worst ever. 可惜的是, 當天池上的天氣又濕又冷, 因為下大雨, 所以這次的戶外教學超不好玩. 真是最慘的!
The following pictures were taken in the Chr Shang Farmer's Association, where we spent most of the day. Because of the rain, we were all trapped together in a series of little rooms. 這些照片是在池上農會拍的. 我們當天大部分的時間都在那裏. 因為下雨的關係, 我們都被困在室內.
Here the students are making straw men. It was really loud in this place - not only because of the kids, but also because of the microphones the hosts were using and another, unrelated activity taking place at the same time. 這是學生們在做稻草人. 這個地方很吵鬧. 不只是我們的學生吵, 也是因為工作人員用的麥克風, 和除了我們之外的其他的活動的噪音.
After making our straw men we went to another small room, where the hostess talked about rice production. Most of us could only hear every third word out of four, and it was all pretty complicated for fourth graders anyway. 做完稻草人之後我們去另一個房間聽他們介紹米的生產. 我們大部分的人只聽到四分之一的話. 而且他們講的內容對四年級的小朋友來說太複雜了.
Then it was time for lunch. As you can see, we enjoyed a well-balanced lunch consisting of cookies, candies, and chips. I felt a little ill afterward. 午餐時間到了. 你應該看的出來我們營養的午餐是什麼. 全部都是餅乾跟糖果. 我吃完後有點想吐.
After lunch we went to Mu Ye Pasture, a empty, broken-down, sad-looking place owned and operated by the Taisugar Corporation. As far as I could tell, we were the only visitors. 午餐後我們去破破爛爛的牧野牧場. 這個牧場屬於台糖. 我們是那一天僅有的觀光客.
And this is Genghis Khan. Mu Ye strives for a Mongolian feel, but doesn't quite succeed. I suppose if you were interested you could stay in this place, but why would you want to? It would be super spooky at night. 這是成吉思汗. 牧野有點蒙古風的感覺, 可是只是一點點而已. 有興趣的人可以住這裡, 可是真的有人要住這裡嗎? 晚上的時候應該很恐怖!
