泰迪熊計畫是一個廣受各國師生歡迎的活動,自推出以來全世界已有超過一萬個班級參與。這個活動旨在透過泰迪熊(或娃娃)的交換,讓孩子能體驗異國生活與文化習俗;另一方面孩子也擔任「小主人」接待前來遊學的泰迪熊,為娃娃拍照並撰寫生活日記,將自己的生活環境與文化介紹給不同國家的孩子。本校自2015年與韓國首爾九龍小學、英國松林小學進行泰迪熊計畫,得到家長和小朋友熱情的參與及迴響後,去年再度推出由二年級小朋友與日本池田小學二年級三個班級共同進行的泰迪熊活動。

2016上學期二年級小朋友先選出代表自己班級的娃娃(梅花鹿、小猴子、海豚、小狗、熊貓圓仔和拉拉熊)並完成學習單,寫出自己準備如何成為小主人接待遠來的客人,並帶池田小學的娃娃們遊歷花蓮,一起完成精彩的「花蓮生活日記」。活動結束後,台灣娃娃在池田生活的日記在課堂上播放時,引起了孩子們的驚嘆與好奇,孩子們一邊參與娃娃們的異國歷險,一邊也認識了台/日兩地日常生活的點點滴滴。

Teddy Bear Project has been a success; it was widely introduced throughout the world and nearly 10,000 schools have started to exchange teddy bears with other schools. The teddy bears are regarded as guests; on the other hand, students also learn to be hosts. Students, as hosts, are required to write diaries from the viewpoints of the teddy bears about their cross-cultural experiences. After the hosting is finished, we file the diaries and ship them back to their original owners. By viewing the diaries, with all the hosting and interactions with the puppets, students learn the traditions and customs of the other country.

We have been initiating the Teddy Bear Project ever since 2015. We have exchanged teddy bears with Korea’s Kuryong Primary School and UK’s Pinewood Primary School. With all the supports and participations from our students and parents, we decided to seek more schools abroad that were willing to have the exchange opportunity. Last year our new partner was Ikeda Elementary School and both schools have sent out 6 puppets respectively to the other school. Our students reviewed the daily life of our puppets, which were sent to Japan, and were astonished by the different lifestyles in Japan.
