Welcome to the second edition of Shooting Star’s English Presentations. Here you can see the scripts that the students wrote. We will be uploading a few more presentation in the near future.
Technology to Prevent Global Warming, by Ben Jung
Good evening, everyone. My name is Ben Jung and I have an extremely urgent topic that I’d like to discuss with you today. Global warming.
Have you have ever heard about ‘Global Warming’? Global Warming is what the earth is currently facing which is changing the earth’s climate. Most people do not take the issue seriously. However, it is really serious problem.
The world changed ‘Global Warming’ to ‘Global heating’ and ‘Climate change’ to ‘Climate crisis.’ But how have we made the earth have such a high temperature? It is because of green-house gases. Green-house gases are gases which are made by fossil fuels which release CO2. It blocks heat which the earth usually sends out to space, so the earth becomes hotter.
If the average air temperature rises by 2oC, a tipping point will arrive. A tipping point is a moment at which the earth can’t come back to a normal temperature again. When the tipping point comes, the earth becomes too hot, but humans do anything won’t to stop it.
If the average air temperature rises by 3oC, we will meet chaos on earth. So how do we stop ‘Global Warming’? The best solution is stopping to using fossil fuels. For example, using electric cars is a good thing for the earth. Many companies which make cars should develop the cleaner technology of electric cars. Also, the world should use more green energy which is generated by the sun, wind, and water. All of the world’s companies should be interested in green energy and develop technology by investing in newer technologies like solar and wind farms.
We can do better for our world by driving cars less, recycling more, and eating less meat. I trust we can save the earth. Let’s do more for the earth! Thank you!

“What is it…? Is it an ant?” I said.
The otter ant and Moly played together. They were best friends! We played together. And we went to a small stream of water. Moly brought me a leaf. Moly rode the leaf on the small stream of water. It looked fun!
“Come here! It is fun! It’s not scary!” Moly said.
“Ha ha! It is so fun! It’s like a water slide!” I said.

Imagine You Have a Superpower, by Lucy Kim
Hello. I`m Lucy and I have a magical story I`d like to share with you today. Please hold tight while I begin.
Last night I wished I could have a superpower; I want to be like Wonder Woman. I was in bed then; I went to sleep…. In the morning, I woke up and I got ready for school. I said to my mom “I don’t want to go to school” as a wish. So, mom said “Lucy, you don’t need to go to school today. Your teacher is so sick.” I was so happy.
I thought hard, then I said “I don’t want to be a child anymore! I want to be an adult.” POOF! I changed into an adult with a big sound. I can also change my city to be what I want. It was so fun!
But I had a problem…. If I changed anything I wanted, the world would become so dizzy. If my teacher was sick, I can’t go to school until we find a new teacher. So, I will never see my teacher nor go to school. Also, if I`m an adult right now, my mom will become a grandma. What if my friends will not know who I am because I`m an adult?
I said “No”. And I woke up in my bed. I said “I don`t want a superpower. I like who I am now!” And I went to school. Thank goodness everything was a dream. The end. Thank you for listening. I hope you enjoyed that magical tale.
Imagine You Can Talk to the Trees, by Ryan Kim
Good afternoon, everyone, my name is Ryan. I have a mysterious story is tell you today. One day, I was walking and I crossed the road. After crossing the road, I suddenly tripped and knocked my head.
I collapsed. After two hours, I woke. I could hear someone talking, but there wasn’t anyone in my room. There was only my succulent in my room. I understood what this meant. I got supernatural powers!
Then I ran to the forest because there are many trees and lots of grass. I arrived at the forest. Then, an old pine tree spoke to me. It looked excited.
I spoke with it for an hour. Then I saw oak trees. They were very angry because people cut down many oak trees. I apologized to the oak trees.
Finally, I went back home and sleep. When I woke up, I went back to the forest. But I couldn’t hear the trees speaking any more. I was disappointed. Was it all just a dream? Thank you for listening to my fantastic story!

My Childhood Imagination, by Sunny Shin
Hello, everyone, my name is Sunny. I’m here to tell you about my childhood imagination. When I was seven years old, I had a fun imagination. I wanted to teleport! So, I made a machine called The Twinkle-Twinkle Teleporter. This dream was very useful because I couldn’t walk, so it was great.
One day, my aunt left for Canada. I liked her so much, so I imagined that I could teleport there. I was so happy when I teleported to my aunt. My aunt has a new house. My aunt’s new house has a garden, a dog, and even a house for the dog! The dog is a retriever. The dog’s name is Bark.
When I returned to my house, I teleported my family to my aunt’s house. My family was very excited. My aunt’s family and my family had a great time. We were inside my aunt’s house. The house is very cool.
Last, we teleported to Niagara Falls. It’s a popular waterfall in Canada. I was so amazing. My family and I had a great time with my aunt’s family. When we returned to my house, we thought lots about our trip to Canada. I really wish I could make my imagination come true.
This is the second part of the writing that we created. Each stage of our curriculum was divided into differentiated groups for the students, ensuring that they were able to complete the task they were asked to do. We also provided the students with hopefully fun topics so that they would be interested in presenting. If you would like to see what our presentations looked like, you can click here.
