Hello!! Now I wold like to share to you about my changing Cambodia in 2013 to 2014. In this year I help changed Cambodia a lot like help them use less plastic. I help them by asking question. The question like (Did you burn the plastic). They says no but they bury the plastic. When they bury the plastic. 2 month by come they go back and check the plastics. But the plastic it not decompose. Then I says the plastic it not decompose. If it decompose it take 200 years – 1000 years. Then they like surprise that the plastic it decompose long time. Other than that is I help to cleanse pagoda. When we have the work job with Lyta. we are went to pagoda to cleanse. One more is I help my mom to make him don’t use a lot of plastic. I tell my mom don’t use a lot of plastic because she sell thing a lot and she use a lot of plastic to give the peoples that come to buy the thing frome my mom.
My ASE class with Maxwell Cady about “How to make motor and how to use it well”. Then I had one idea about wind energy then I made it. How it works? When the wind come it spins faster and faster then it created the energy and spent the energy to the LED light by weigher.

In the second years of the school we went to pagoda. We went there for cleaning the pagoda because in that time the pagoda was messy. Then we helped to clean it. All Liger students were happy because they thought that they has been changed Cambodia a little bit already and they enjoy cleaning the pagoda. After we finished cleaning the pagoda the monk gave us three boxes of cokes and other drinks. We think that we had a lot of cokes, then we gave some of cokes to the kids at the pagoda.
Man of the Future
I am a child
I am all the things of my past
I am the hands of my father
Long and thin
I am the hairy legs of my mother.
I am all I see
The Colorful feathers of chickens
The angry and sad face of the dog
A hornbill flying in the sky
And the furry , white body of a goat.
I am all I hear
Tock tock of the rain
The broom broom of the thunder
And the quack quack of my duck.
Ping ping- time for monks to eat lunch.
I am all I feel and taste
Sweet juice of the watermelon
Cold and melting ice-cream
The sour, bitterness of the june plum
And sweet of the apples.
And all I remember
My mom telling me don’t play boom
My friends losing a football game
Writing notes with Jo.
I am all I have been taught
Speak loudly when presenting
Help other people
And have determination.
I am all I think
Becoming a zoologist
And changing Cambodia and the world
Helping poor people.
I am all those things.
I am like a hornbill
And these things are my egg
But one day I will peck my way out
And be free
I’m the man of the future.
]Exploration Name: Khmer Architecture
Exploration Date: November 20-January 17
Number of students: 12
(1) What is the meaning of architecture?
(2) What information should I know about architecture?
(3) What does Khmer architecture look like?
(4) What are the differences between ancient and modern architecture?
(5) How do we create architecture?
Description: Architecture is the process of planning, designing and constructing. When we work on architecture with these three things we have to think about durability, utility and beauty. So in our Exploration we learned about architecture in Cambodia. For example: in Cambodia there are many houses, buildings and also the temples. The Khmer architecture was different than the other countries because like the Angkor Wat is made from the big rocks and the foundation that they built is layers of rocks and sand. But in the other countries, like in the U.S.A, there are not really the buildings that have the foundation like that. Before, the buildings in Cambodia were not that big. The houses were also not that big and were not made from cement like right now. Now when they make the houses, they put many colors and many styles that they want. But at the past, the Khmer buildings were not too big and did not have many styles like now. Just the temples had many styles that Khmer ancestors made by hand with the big rocks. On the big rocks they made the big sculptures that showed about Khmer history. To do the architecture we have to follow the theory of architecture and do it step by step. In this group we went on the trip to Siem Reap to learn how did the Khmer ancestors build the temples. Other than that we also went to some places in Phnom Penh. We went to Central Market, Olympic Stadium and PPIT. That is the school that teaches about the architecture.
Exploration Name: Forest Ecology
Exploration Dates: Oct 7, 2013 – Nov 19, 2013
Number of students: 12
(1) What is an ecosystem?
(2) What is a natural resource?
Description: An ecosystem is the living things and the non-living things connecting with each other. The one example is algae. Algae take the sunlight for food and fish eat algae and then people eat fish. This is one connection. In Ecosystems class we had a journey book to take notes or write keywords that we don’t know what that word means. In Ecology class the first topic that we learned was tropical forest. We did not just learn only tropical forests but we also learned a lot of kinds of forests like conifers and others. A tropical forest is the forest that has rain a lot all year. We also learned about ecological relationships. Ecological relationships mean that one organism and another organism connect with each other. Ecological relationships are divided in five parts. They are parasitism, commensalism, predator-prey, mutualism and competition. Our Ecology group went to Mondulkiri province to study there. We spent six days at Mondolkiri. We met a lot of people like Bunong people. On Saturday we came back to our school and we shared what we learned.
Moths are insects. They like to fly at night and some fly in the morning too. They have two wings , six legs and a lot of colors round their wings and they are related to the butterflies. Their antennas are different to butterflies antennas. Moth antennas don’t have the knob. But the butterflies antennas have the knob. The moth sleep with open wings. When they land on somethings they use their feet to taste. Butterflies and moths start life the same way. Their both have a lot of predators like to eat them.
Larva life: Moths start as an egg. Then the egg become to the caterpillar it take around 15-16 days. The caterpillars come to the pupa. so the pupa become to the moth. They are near the bottom of food web. One kind of the caterpillars look like the predators. One kind of caterpillars do like the super snack because they want to make the predators skare. When the caterpillars stingus us it hurt for 20 minutes. Fiercest Caterpillar call Puss moth spots on front look big black eyes. The caterpillars is the Champion of eating. A lot of caterpillars eats plants and leaves. But some kind of this caterpillars are eating the meat. When skin of the caterpillars are get too tight it take the old skin out. Then new skin coming and the caterpillars they eating more.
Transformers: When the caterpillars take out of their skin from 4-5 times it molt for last time then it going to be pupa. When caterpillars become to pupa it not eating any things. After that the pupa start to open then the moth come out. The bat like to fly at night and the moths like to fly at night too so when the bat see the moths they eat the moths. But some moths are so smart they fly zigzags to make the bat they hart to eat them. Some moths heard the sound of the bat when they come to eat them. One more kind of them just stand on land when the bat come to eat. They take out the bad smell for the bat can’t not eat.
Camouflage: This insects so smart they use camouflage to hide from predators and make them skair. The camouflages of moths was open wing into blend of trees bark or rock. Some camouflage make moth looks like the stinging bees.

The yummy smell of a pink Strawberry.
And the spicy odour of Chilli.
Or the chocolate aroma of a sweet cookies.
The tempting smell of a steaming potato.
And the stink of Lubricants from a moto.

And the aroma of a my lovely Papa.
Or the sweaty stink of a big Gorilla.
