# Panda Party

## Pause and Praise a Panda

May , 2007

There are very few pandas left in the world. But a preserve in southwestern China is helping that number grow! In February, the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Center held a special celebration to name each of their 18 panda cubs.

On the left below, we've listed three of their Mandarin Chinese names. Add the fractions next to each name. Then, draw a line to the correct sum on the right. Next to the sum is the meaning of that panda's name, in English.

Fuwa 5/8 + ¼                       ¾ Mischievous

Meixi ¼ + 1/8                       7/8 Friendly

Taotao ½ + ¼                       3/8 Beautiful
