科摩多大蜥蜴 – 印尼

Komodo Dragon @ Indonesia

我記得第一次看到科摩多大蜥蜴是從一個日本的電視節目, 節目製作讓某個女藝人穿著日式浴衣身上綁著一條長繩子另一端掛著生肉, 跑給科摩多大蜥蜴追, 然後不斷喊的 速い~速い~速い~ 看完不禁覺得…

傻眼…難道他們不知道科摩多龍的速度是很快而且超毒的嗎??

My first time saw Komodo Dragon was from a Japanese Tv program. A female in Yukata ( traditional japanese summer outfit ) tiding a piece of raw meat on her ( with a long line ) , tried to attract Komodo Dragon’s attention and, of coz…the dragon was running after her in a very high speed. The girl keep shouting “so fast~so fast”…. I can’t help wondering, seriously? you guys have NO IDEA that a Komodo Dragon IS fast and is incredibly toxic??

每次玩神秘袋抽動物的時候, [科摩多大蜥蜴] 總是能引起所有小朋友的注意力。因為它是貨真價實的『龍的傳人』啊~ 英文的學名叫做 Komodo Dragon 科摩多龍 – 現存全世界最大的蜥蜴。

Every time when we play the “secret bag”, the most exciting animal is always “Komodo Dragon aka. the biggest lizard in the world”. ! it just somehow attracts kids full attention. Probably because it’s the actual “Dragon” in today’s world. I mean, where you can see a real dragon now in 21 century 😉

當孩子們忘記 [科摩多大蜥蜴] 住在哪裡的時候, 我的提示是: 1) 亞洲 2) 很多島嶼的國家

Whenever kids are confusing where to place Komodo Dragon, here’re my hints: 1) Asia 2) a country with lots of islands.

不過這兩個提示其實可能產生的答案有兩個:菲律賓 或 印尼

這個時候我們就會從地圖上找一找, 這兩個國家的位置, 菲律賓的島嶼分布是上下/南北長; 而印尼在更靠近赤道並且是呈現左右/東西寬的樣貌。而科摩多大蜥蜴是原生於印尼。

However, these 2 clues lead to 2 possible answers: Philippine or Indonesia. Then we’ll take a look on the map. Philippine locates north-south long while Indonesia is more west-east wide. And Komodo Dragon origins from Indonesia.

通常話題至此結束, 但是這個月多了有趣的新消息!那就是印尼總統在8月份的時候宣布要遷都。從臨海的雅加達(爪哇)遷到內陸的東加里曼都(婆羅洲)。主要的原因是因為雅加達下沈的速度太快了(一年平均20cm的速度往海平面下陷 !) 當然還有城市已不堪負荷所有的人口、環境污染、塞車問題等等。

This month we have a new topic to talk about regarding to Komodo Dragon – Indonesia is relocating its capital from Jarkata to east Kalimantan of Borneo. The main reason is that Jarkata is sinking 20cm annually, which considered one of the fastest sinking speed of a city. And, of coz due to over crowded population, pollution issues, traffic over loaded..etc

第一次跟孩子提到首都以及遷都的概念, 其實大家都不太有感。在這個年紀對『首都』的定義以及『遷都』

背後代表的意義真的很難掌握, 但這就是這堂課有趣的地方!

如何用簡單的語言讓孩子們理解這些抽象的概念, 實在是很有挑戰性!這也是我愛我的課程的原因之一!

This topic, however not that familiar for kids, as probably is their first time to know about “capital” concept, not mention about the meaning of “relocating a capital”. That’s the interesting part of this class, for both me and kids, how we get to know about these sort of abstract ideas and how can I introduce them in a simple language, it’s actually quite challenging! And that’s the part I love my class!
