New concept english 3 1 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Lesson 1 A puma at large
  • 2. Can you describe the animal in the picture? Key words: cat-like body: limbs( 四肢 ): slender strong, and the hind legs (后腿) are longer than the front. head: small ears: small and rounded neck: long tail: long and heavy
  • 3. Listening Listen to the tape then answer the question below. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. What sort of reports were received by London Zoo? Were the reports similar in nature or not? Who saw the puma first? Did it stay in one place, or did it move from place to place? What did it leave behind it? Were paw prints and puma fur found as well or not? What was heard at night? Was the animal seen up a tree or not? Were experts now sure that the animal really was a puma or not? 10. Where must the puma have come from?
  • 4. Reading Read the text carefully, and then do the multiple choice questions below: 1. (a) (b) (c) (d) 2. (a) (b) (c) (d) 3. (a) (b) (c) (d) Experts eventually decided to investigate . because they did not believe that pumas existed in England because they wanted a puma for the London Zoo when a woman saw a puma in a small village because people’s descriptions of the puma had a lot in common What particular piece of evidence persuaded the experts that a puma had been seen in the village? The puma had not attacked the woman. The woman had described the animal she had seen as ‘a large cat ’. A puma had come very close to a human being. The puma had behaved like a cat. What was the problem the experts were unable to solve? How the puma had managed to cover such great distances within a day. How the puma had escaped from a zoo. Whom the puma had belonged to. How the puma had climbed a tree.
  • 5. A puma at large Pumas are large, cat-like animals which are found in America. When reports came into London Zoo that a wild puma had been spotted forty-five miles south of London, they were not taken seriously. However, as the evidence began to accumulate, experts from the Zoo felt obliged to investigate, for the descriptions given by people who claimed to have seen the puma were extraordinarily similar.
  • 6. A puma at large The hunt for the puma began in a small village where a woman picking blackberries saw 'a large cat' only five yards away from her. It immediately ran away when she saw it, and experts confirmed that a puma will not attack a human being unless it is cornered. The search proved difficult, for the puma was often observed at one place in the morning and at another place twenty miles away in the evening. Wherever it went, it left behind it a trail of dead deer and small animals like rabbits. Paw prints were seen in a number of places and puma fur was found clinging to bushes. Several people complained of 'cat-like noises' at night and a businessman on a fishing trip saw the puma up a tree. The experts were now fully convinced that the animal was a puma, but where had it come from? As no pumas had been reported missing from any zoo in the country, this one must have been in the possession of a private collector and somehow managed to escape. The hunt went on for several weeks, but the puma was not caught. It is disturbing to think that a dangerous wild animal is still at large in the quiet countryside .
