Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Baiguo Mt. is located at the east of Yuanlin Township, Changhua County. It is one part of Bagua Mt. Tableland. It takes less than 10 minutes by car to reach the Yuanlin Township center and it is a good place to have leisure and keep fit. Baiguo Mt. once was famous for many kinds of fruits and water source, and it is named as “Baiguo Mt.”. It is also the passage of Yuanlin to Tsaotun Town of Nantou County. Therefore, there are many unique trails. So far, it is a good sport ground for people living in Yuanlin or nearby. Since it owns abundant of natural ecological resources, quiet rest space, combing the relevant source of Sanshan National Scenic Area, the Baiguo Mt. Hiking Trail has become the complete important routes for exercise, travelling and hiking in Yuanlin area. According to the investigation of Changhua Environmental Education Promotion Association, we know that there are more than 100 kinds of plants in the Longding ancient path. Its rich and multicomponent ecological environment makes it a good place for mountain climbing and cycle racing, and it is also a good place for Taiwanese idioms teaching, ecology learning, Sakura and tung flower appreciating.

2. Summary of Our Project

The Baiguo Mt. Hiking Trail in Linzai Street is a natural ecological resource place with both history and recreational functions. People from township office and local government agencies often come here for activities. Some ecological teaching activities are also held here. People from other townships also come here to enjoy this hiking trail which was developed by our ancestors. Today, some local residents of Yuanlin Township and other townships are unfamiliar with this trail. It is indeed a green ecological treasury and is filled with the wisdom of the ancestors. We hope that all kinds of sightseeing resource like the Baiguo Mt. Hiking Trail can be promoted through the Cyberfair project, all kinds of publicity and the on-site visit. We hope what we did can motivate more amusing and interesting activities, such as star fruit and longan sightseeing season. We expect more and more people can know “Linzai Street-Yuanlin Township”- a good place to take leisure- “Baiguo Mt. Hiking Trail” after our hard reporting.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Problems We Had To Overcome: We summarized the problems we faced during this Cyberfair project. First, because the team members are from two classes, it was difficult to bring them together. Then, we experienced difficulty in selecting the theme category, the formation of the concept framework, the task distribution, the time progress, and the use of the technology media in webpage making. Thanks to these difficulties, we learned how to solve the problems, and the progress is stated as below: (1)Time,(2) Category,(3)Running against the time,(4)The issue of framework concept,(5) Comprehensive organization sorting out: by using all kinds of science technology and media: “We Are One Team” are students from fifth grade of primary school. We have had the related curricular of computer information since third grade. Therefore, we have basic skills in information operation. We upload the data collected at ordinary times and the schedule after the study to the space of the cloud of school server. Then we share the ideas and experiences with each other. Therefore, it’s not very hard to upload and sort out the data. However, as for webpage making and website setting and making, we know less of them and we still need to learn more about them. We encountered many difficulties. We have no concept of art edition, and don’t know how to edit the content of the webpage, therefore, we dispute over those problem sometimes. The process is really difficult, but it makes us understand how to learn from each other, how to tolerate each other. It makes us grow.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

Through the on-site investigation, visiting and surveying on Baiguo Mt., we have learned one common concept, and that is to actively popularize the true, the good and the beauty of the Baiguo Mt. Hiking Trail - a good place for leisure of Linzai Street, and to make people from Yuanlin Town, Changhua County, the whole country or even the people all over the world know the paths of Baiguo Mt. Fortunately, all of us can seriously concentrate on study which is about our hometown, and willing to paying efforts to learn. Moreover, the support and assistance from the director, teachers and parents make us enjoy the “Joy Slide” happily. We hope that through our promotion, the paths of Baiguo Mt. can be pushed at the peak of the slide, and slide into the team of sightseeing resources, even into the international team of sightseeing. To sightseeing of Yuanlin Township, to Baiguo Mt. Hiking Trail, “We are One Team” did the best~!
