This time, our two ninth-grade girls can participate in the webpage game, probably because we are all the Western story writers and also have experience of making show-pads. Our advantage is clear, but our time was limited not to cover. We had an interview for mother with the time of going home. But mother really supported us, so the work continued more smoothly. The following work on the internet is finished satisfactorily. Encountering difficulties is manual process. Because I have not done it for a long time and mastered badly, I was not careful to broken finger, pain. But all things passed. When we saw our works, we are so happy.

But time was not enough, we are confident. Through the efforts for one month, we've gathered a lot of information to make our own webpage. CISS systems simplified our task. Although the webpage did roughly, content was not enough, we were very pleased for the final 'result'. In this process, we learned many things outside the books, understood the long standing history and culture, more loved own hometownLet students understand the local customs and folk culture of their hometown, love hometown, propagandize hometown, improve the visibility of the hometown and add luster to hometown for traveling industry.
