4. Problems We Had To Overcome
This is our first time to join web page designing competition with the theme of local specialties. We have a lot of special products here. When our teacher said that they formerly did the project about Chaotian walnut and won awards, we were very surprised. We want to do a study on cold rice noodles. So we set about consulting literature, and ate the Chaotian cold noodles. How wonderful the pungent and spicy is. In our interview, the aunts quite supported us. As there are secrets in noodle making, we have not made cold noodles by ourselves. What a pity! But we seasoned by ourselves, and had a kind of fulfillment.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
I eat cold noodles every day. However I never expected to put it into web page for competition. It makes us feel so excited, and know there is knowledge in everyday life.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Around us there are many special snacks, but there are few students who know about it. In the new curriculum reform, it advocates the development of school-based teaching materials. We want to study and sort out these distinctive things around, and put them as our and local curriculum, propagating for the tourist industry of our area.
