As I began my Inquiry Project, I was looking the possible topics from Mr. T's list of things to do in XiZhou. When I was looking through the topics, the ones that looked like they might be interesting were farming, local education system, or end of life rituals. As I thought about these topics there were some questions that I came up with:

In general I know that China is a very big supplier to everyone around the world. China will continue to do well in supplying crops around the world because China has a vast amount of healthy land to grow many different types of crops. I know that China is virtually stable for growing rice, wheat, and corn. I also know that farming is one of the more major jobs in china partly because farmers have to  feed their family. They do this because farming may be a hard job but most of the time it feeds the families and puts a roof over their head.

As I look back all the way to Phase 1 when I was researching about my topic, I looked at many links, websites and so on. I did not always know if the websites were telling the truth or not. I would sometimes check with my mom if this was telling the right information. If she could not tell me if this information was valid or not, I would dig a little deeper and find out more information.

While I am finishing up the process of my inquiry project, I would need to have a thesis sentence to show the general understanding of what I am learning. My main thesis that I hope to share with my audience is: In order to fully understand what it would take to grow rice for the year, one would have to know the techniques, tools, and the background information.

About This Learner

I am in XiZhou now! The sun is shining and the air is clean. It is so peaceful and quiet here and everybody is so friendly. I can't wait to get out into the fields and work with the farmers. I also cant wait to get out into the village and start asking questions about my topic! The final thing that I am excited about is the service learning project. I will be really cool to learn about the past in XiZhou!
