Jenny: Hi, Mum! Hi, Dad! Guess what!

We’re learning about the Silk Road this month in school.

Mr. Smith: The Silk Road? That’s in China!

Jenny: Yes, it is! Mum and Dad, may I ask you a question?

Mrs. Smith: Sure, Jenny! What is it?

Jenny: My school is planning a trip around China with Li Ming’s school.

Some students from my class will go to China and travel on the Silk Road.

May I go with them?

Mr. Smith: Who will lead the trip?

Jenny: Ms. Martin! Here is the note from my school.

(Jenny’s father and mother read the note.)

Mrs. Smith: Yes, you may go. This is a good chance for you. You will learn about China.

Jenny: Really? Great! Thanks, Mum and Dad! I’m so excited! I will send Li Ming an e-mail and tell him the good news.

Lesson 6: Jenny’s Diary

Dear Diary,

This is our last night in China. We will fly home tomorrow. We did so much on this trip.

This afternoon, we went to see the Beijing Opera. Wow! I loved the music and the colourful clothing.

Yesterday was a great day. In the afternoon, we went to the Great Wall. It is amazing! It is about 6 300 kilometres long and over 2 000 years old. Then, in the evening, we went to the Bird’s Nest. It is only a few years old, but it is a very famous and beautiful building. It held the 2008 Olympics. Danny looked for birds there. But of course — he didn’t find any.

China is a great country. Where else can you travel thousands of years back in time? We saw the Terra Cotta Warriors, the Walled City and the Yellow River.

I learned so much about Chinese history and culture on this trip.

I learned about a new instrument — the erhu. And I ate some delicious food.

I can’t believe our trip is over. I will miss China. I will come back someday.

Lesson 8: Marco Polo and the Silk Road

Hello, everyone!

My project is about Marco Polo and the Silk Road.

Marco Polo was a man from Italy. At the age of 17, he went to China.

He travelled along the Silk Road with his father and uncle. Together, they moved goods between Europe and Asia on the Silk Road. Later, Marco Polo travelled with his brother. They travelled on boats, horses and camels. Their journey lasted about twenty years!

In 1275, Marco Polo travelled to Beijing. He met the king and worked for him for 17 years. During those years, Marco Polo learned about coal and paper. The Chinese discovered coal and invented paper. These things were new to Marco Polo. He brought some coal and paper back to Italy with him.

He also brought back a lot of silk, tea and other goods.

Marco Polo wrote a famous book about his travels to China. I hope to write a book like that someday.

Thank you.

Lesson 11: Food in China

Jenny goes online to tell others about the food in China.

(Jenny) Hello, everyone! I just got back from a trip to the Silk Road in China.

Everything was great — especially the food!

My favourite dishes were Beijing Duck and Lanzhou noodles. What’s so special about these two dishes? Well, they have a lot of history behind them. Beijing Duck is really a Chinese treasure. It takes a lot of work, but the end product is worth it. Lanzhou noodles are long hand-made noodles. They look good and taste great! Do you want to taste these wonderful foods from China?

(Dora) Your story is very interesting. I saw a show about Lanzhou noodles on TV. The man made the noodles so fast. It was like magic!

(Monica) I heard that, in China, some people eat noodles for breakfast. Is this true?

Hello. My name is Hao Tongxin. I live in a small village. I’m in Grade 7 and I love going to school!

My school is a “hope” school. Last year, I wanted to give up my studies. I wanted to stay home and help my family. But my teacher said, “With a good education, you can make a difference. You can make a good life for yourself. Then you can help your family, friends and other people, too.” She gave me hope.

My teacher is great. She often visits her students and their families. She does not want anyone to drop out of school. She always helps us in every possible way.

She is making a big difference in our lives.

Now, I never miss a day of school. I want to make a difference in the future — just like my teacher.

Jason’s classmates heard the bad news.

They stood up and said, “Jason, don’t be afraid. We are with you.” The class wanted to help Jason and his family. So they came up with a plan.

The next day, many students brought clothes and food from their homes. The school had a car wash and a cookie sale. In just three days, the school raised $1 200.

Yesterday, the school gave the money to Jason’s family. Jason said to his friends,

“Thank you, my dear classmates and teachers. My family and I will never forget this.”

Hello, everyone!

How are you? I’m doing well. Life in China is great! I arrived two months ago. I was quite nervous then. But everyone here is so friendly and nice. Now I feel quite comfortable and relaxed. My students are wonderful and the other teachers are always helpful.

My school is very big. I have many students in my class. In Canada, there are usually only 35 students in a class. And they move from classroom to classroom for their classes. But in China, the teachers move!

Chinese students work very hard. They usually start school at 8:00 a.m. and finish at 5:00 p.m. Chinese teachers work very hard, too.

I’m so happy to be in China. I am learning so much here. My students often teach me Chinese. They also teach me about their culture. It’s so interesting!
