TIGER TERRITORY

Tiger Territory

At San Diego Zoo Safari Park, you can see lots of amazing animals in beautiful surroundings. The Tiger Trail is a popular attraction for visitors who want to see Sumatran tigers: you can look through huge glass windows and watch the Sumatran tigers playing and enjoying their habitat. The safari park has lots of trees and plants for the tigers to hide in and it has lots of things for the tigers to do.
Tigers are beautiful, powerful animals. They can run fast, so they need lots of space. The Tiger Trail habitat is huge, so the tigers have lots of space to run. Tigers are very good at climbing trees, too. They like lying on branches because they can see a lot from the branches of tall trees. At the Tiger Trail, there are lots of rocks and tall trees for the tigers to climb.
You can look up through the glass and see a huge tiger looking down at you!
Tigers are members of the cat family. Cats usually hate water, but tigers love it! They are very good swimmers. At the Tiger Trail, there are pools for the tigers to play in. You can watch them playing and swimming in the water. When they are tired, they can relax in the long grass or in special dens.
Sumatran tigers are an endangered species. There are only about 400 Sumatran tigers left in the world. They live in forests in Sumatra, Indonesia. People are destroying the forests because they want the land for farming. As a result, many Sumatran tigers don’t have a place to live. San Diego Zoo wants to protect Sumatran tigers in the safari park and in the wild. They want people to learn about tigers and try to help them.

Listen and put the rhymes in the correct order.

You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers

The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connect to each other
In a circle in a hoop that never ends

How high will the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you’ll never know
And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

You think I’m an ignorant savage
And you’ve been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don’t know?
You don’t know …

You can own the Earth and still
All you’ll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they’re worth

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew

1. Read the text and answer the questions: Was Jack–O-Lantern a real person? Why? Why not?

The Jack-O-Lantern Legend

Halloween is October 31. Do you carve or paint a pumpkin for Halloween? Whether you paint or carve a scary face for your Jack O’Lantern, did you know that you are continuing an ancient tradition based on an old Irish myth? While you read this spooky story remember that a myth is a person, story or thing that is only imaginary.
According to an ancient Irish myth, Stingy Jack sat down to have a drink with the devil. And just like his name tells us, Stingy Jack didn’t want to pay for his drink. He cajoled the devil to turn himself into a coin that Jack would use to pay for their drinks. But as soon as the devil did so, Jack pocketed the coin! Jack kept a small silver cross in that same pocket and the cross kept the devil from changing back into his true form. Jack struck a deal with the devil and freed him under the condition that he would not trouble Jack for one year and would not claim his soul if he died.
When the agreed year was up, the devil returned, but Jack tricked him again. He convinced the devil that he should climb into a tree to pick a ripe piece of fruit. Jack carved a sign of the cross into the trunk of the tree so that the devil couldn’t come down until he promised Jack not to bother him for ten more years.
Not long after, Jack died. Legend has it that such an unsavoury character could not be accepted into heaven. Meanwhile, the devil, angered by the tricks Jack had played on him and keeping his word, would not claim his soul or allow Jack into hell. He sent Jack off into the dark night with only a burning coal to light his path.
Jack carved out a turnip and put the coal in it so it wouldn’t burn his hands. According to the myth, Jack has been roaming the Earth ever since, carrying his turnip lantern. The Irish began to refer to this ghostly figure as “Jack of the Lantern” and then simply as “Jack O’Lantern.”
People in Ireland, Scotland and England began to carve scary faces into turnips, potatoes and beets. They would place them in windows and doorways to frighten away the roaming ghost of Stingy Jack and other wandering spirits.
When immigrants from these countries came to America, they brought the Jack O’Lantern tradition with them. Here they quickly discovered what you already know; pumpkins make perfect Jack O’Lanterns!
