In the Shandong Experimental Middle School, the "last lesson" for senior students before the college entrance examination is to expose the "growth blind box". This is an activity quietly planned by teachers and parents. The children’s childhood photos are exposed in the classroom and the students can guess Guess "who he (she) is", take this opportunity to ease the test takers' nervous preparation for the test.

"The head teacher issued the admission ticket for the college entrance examination, and again reminded us of the precautions for the exam, encouraging us to stick to the question no matter how difficult it is to win in the end, and then everyone began to pack all the books and go home. Everyone was relatively silent and didn't know how to say goodbye. "

"Before the high school seniors left school, the teachers were a hundred people worried. They were afraid that there were still test sites that weren’t clear. They were afraid that the students would still have questions to answer. But now, from the school to the parents, they generally support creating a relaxed experience for students. The welcoming atmosphere allows students to release their stress and emotions in the way they like." Liu Fugang also said that the premise of the "fancy" test delivery event is to grasp the degree, and after the event, students should be guided to calm their minds and calmly welcome the college entrance examination. .
