The little boy entered the house,unhappy. His mother was  1 
cakes in the kitchen. She smiled as she turned around but stopped when she saw his face.“Tyler, 2 
happened? Is everything OK?”
“Nothing is OK,Mom,”said the boy.“Today,in our science lesson,Mrs. Green was talking about the environment. She said that the whole world is getting dirtier and that many animals and plants are dying. She wants us to think of something we can do to help. I thought all the way home,but there is  3 
I can do to make a difference.”
“Let me tell you  4 
,”the mother said after thinking for a while.“One morning a man was walking down a beach,there he saw thousands of dying starfish
(海星)covering the beach,they were pushed up by the  5 
,and it was too far up for them to make their way back by themselves. The man shook his head as he walked along.‘What a pity!So many starfish will die on the beach. ’The man felt very sorry  6 
those starfish. He went on walking and just at that time he was surprised to find a boy in front who was throwing the starfish back into the sea as  7 
as he could.‘How silly you are!My  8 
,’the man said,‘There are so many starfish,can you throw all of them back?’The boy didn’t stop but kept throwing.‘ 9 
I can’t help them all,I can make a difference to this one,and this one,and this one,’said the boy.”
“Thinking for a moment,the man  10 
to help return the starfish to their home. He smiled and said to himself,‘Sometimes the biggest lesson in life comes from the smallest person.’”
