Different types of maps have different uses. Tourist maps, for example, have signs (标志) to show places of interest in an area. When tourists read these maps, it is easy for them to find where to go and what to see in a place and it is easy for them to go and find their ways to these places.
Road maps show large areas so that people can plan long journeys. Different types of roads are given different numbers. For example, if you want to go to Wood Green, you just follow No. 621 Road and keep looking at the road signs.
Distribution maps (分布图) use colors or signs to show facts about an area. For example, where different languages are spoken, how many people live in an area, how cold and hot some places are, or whether a place is short of water.

Anger(生气) is a kind of feeling. Many things can make you angry. When you have a lot of homework to do, when your team loses an important game, when a friend borrows your bike and breaks it, you can get really angry. Usually, your body will tell you when you are angry. For example, you breathe faster, your face turns red, and you may want to break something or hit someone, but
sometimes you hide your anger. For example, you may hide it in your heart. The problem is that if you do this, you may get a headache or your stomach may hurt. In fact, it is not good to hide your anger, and it is important for you to get angry sometimes. But anger must be let out in the right way, without hurting others or yourself. When you get angry, you can talk about it with other people. It is helpful to talk about your anger with an adult, such as a parent, a teacher, etc. When you talk about anger, those bad feelings can start to go away. Here are some other things you can do when you start to feel angry: talk to a good friend; count from 1 to 100; give someone a hug; go for a bike ride; think about good things, etc. Remember that how you act when you are angry can make everything better or worse.

Have you ever watered a garden and watched the water disappear(消失) into the soil? This fun experiment shows how plants take water from the ground to grow. Ask an adult to help you. You Will Need: ? Medium-sized glass ? Water ? Red food coloring ? Spoon ? 1 celery stalk with leaves (一根带叶的芹菜) You Will Do: 1. Fill the glass halfway with water. 2. Stir(搅拌) in enough food coloring to make the water dark red.
3. Ask Mom or Dad to cut 1 inch off the bottom of the celery stalk. Place the stalk in the water and let it stand overnight. What Will Happen? The leaves will turn red, as well as the tiny tubes running up through the stalk. Break the stalk in half, and you will see red dots in each piece. Why? As a plant grows, its roots act like straws(麦秆状吸管), sucking water up into the stem or stalk. Tiny tubes（管） inside the stalk carry water farther up into the leaves. (By coloring the water red, this is easier to see.) The red dots show a cross-section of the tiny tubes through which the water traveled.(190) k1 51. What is this article mostly about?
