Step 3 Reading

Task I  Exchange ideas in groups of four for a whole passage. 4人一组、小组合作)

Many animals have disappeared during the long history of the earth.  1   They lived on the earth tens of millions of years ago, long before humans came into being and their future seemed secure at that time.  2   The eggs of twenty-five species have been found in Xixia County, Nanyang, Henan Province. Not long ago a rare new species of bird-like dinosaur was discovered in Chaoyang County, Liaoning Province. When scientists inspected the bones, they were surprised to find that these dinosaurs could not only run like the others but also climb trees.    3  

Dinosaurs died out suddenly about 65 million years ago. Some scientists think it came after an unexpected incident when a huge rock from space hit the earth and put too much dust into the air.  4  Nobody knows for sure why and how dinosaurs disappeared from the earth in such a short time.

We know many other wild plants, animals, insects and birds have died out more recently.   5   The dodo is one of them. It lived on the Island of Mauritius and was a very friendly animal.

A. According to a UN report, some 844 animals and plants have disappeared in the last 500 years.

B. Others think the earth got too hot for the dinosaurs to live on any more.

C. There were many different kinds of dinosaur and a number of them used to live in China.

D. Others are firmly convinced that the dinosaurs disappeared due to overhunting.

E. They learned this from the way the bones were joined together.
