Quadblogging-the way of the Panda

In our Chinese lessons, we have had discussions about the Giant Pandas. Please read this picture book-the way of the Panda. This children’s picture book is a fictional interpretation of how the Giant Panda got its peculiar markings.
After reading this book, please answer one of the following questions:
• How did it get those particular black and white markings?
• What made this meat eater become a bamboo eater?

Gold monkey is another endangered animal from the same region as Giant Pandas in CHINA.

  2. The panda got black markings because the golden monkey gave him the stripes to remember the ways of the panda.
    The golden mokey gave the panda the softest part of the bamboo stick.

  3. 1. the panda gets his spots from the monky because the monky said that the spots are because of his actions like be treated how you want to be treated.
    2. there was a pola bear that got lost in a bambo forast and he growe hungry so he triyed a piece of bambo and he loved it.

  4. Thank you year year 3 and 4s. The panda bear learned the ways of the forest and how to live in harmony within it; changing his ways and diet, balance was restored in the forest.

  5. • How did it get those particular black and white markings?
    The Panda got it’s black spots from black paint. The black paint was painted on his eyes, as a reminder of his sight, it was also painted on his ears, to remind him about his earing abilities, and then Panda painted his heart, to remind him of his new monkey friends.

  6. The Golden monkey fed the Panda bamboo leaves and the Panda loved the bamboo so much that it gave up being a meat eater.

  7. Hi Mrs. Tian,
    The giant panda became a bamboo eater because there was no meat left in the bamboo bush to eat, so one night the golden monkey fed the giant panda the bamboo and now pandas eat bamboo.

    The giant panda got its black spots because the golden monkey got black ink and marked him in different spots to represent different things now all pandas are like that.

  8. The panda got those particular black and white markings because Golden Monkey make black ink and painted him with it. The Black Limbs are to only take what they needs. The Black Ears so they can hear the cries of nature. The Black Eyes so they can see how his actions effect others. Finally The Black Band over their heart so they can always remember where real change begins.

  9. The bear stopped eating meat because there wasn’t enough meat and the bear couldn’t catch the animals. Also the monkey convienced the bear to learn the way of the forest. He got painted black so he would remember the past things he did.

  10. The panda was black because the golden monkey started painting the panda black in the bamboo forest. The panda started eating bamboo because the panda was to lazy to catch any animals for their meat.

  11. The panda got those particular black and white markings because Golden Monkey make black ink and painted him with it. The Black Limbs are to only take what they needs.

  12. How did it get those particular black and white markings?
    The Panda painted the black markings on himmself because so they would be seen as reminders on his body so his lessons would never be forgotten.

    What made this meat eater become a bamboo eater?
    He started to eat bamboo when he ran out of meat. He became a herbivore when the Golden Monkey gave him some bamboo to eat.

  13. Hi Mrs.Tian,
    the giant panda got its black markings because the golden monkey and the other animals from the jungle painted them on. This is because it would make the bear/panda remember the ways of the bamboo forest. Panda became a herbivore after the golden monkey gave the starving white bear the most succulent branches of the bamboo because there was no more meat.

  14. • What made this meat eater become a bamboo eater?

    The Panda became a Bamboo eater because he ate everything and he became lazy and the Golden Monkey taught him how to eat bamboos. ;D

  15. Hi Mrs Tian,
    The panda stoped eating meat becuase he could not catch any animals then the golden monkey feed him bamboo. Then the panda started to eat bamboo becuase of the monkey. The panda became black becuase the golden monkey painted him black in the forest.

  16. Very good answers year 5 and 6. Do you know that
    Pandas have the digestive system of a carnivore, but they have adapted to a vegetarian diet of bamboos.maybe this story is trying to tell us why panda changed to herbivore.

  17. Hello Tian Lao shi,

    I saw a link to your post through the Quad Blogging site and was fascinated by the story, “The Way of the Panda”. So many cultures have wonderful stories to explain how things came to be. Some, such as “The Way of the Panda”, can teach us lessons in how to behave. As for the panda and gold monkey, there are animals in Australia now endangered.

    Perhaps we can all learn from Giant Panda’s experience and find ways to work better together. :)
