Winter Learning Journey Day 7 Bonus Activity

I have learned that we need to keep our neighbourhoods clean. I like that this week was easy so I have more time to comment.
Bonus Activity: On your blog, post a video or write a description about your week. What have you learned? What did you like about the trip? What didn’t you like? Was there anything that surprised you?

To earn full points for this activity, you must talk about what you learned, what you liked and what you liked about your great kiwi road trip.

Winter Learning Journey Day 7 Activity 2

I like reading because it can help you concentrate and you can learn things from books and you can also read easy books then to harder and more harder books.
Activity 2: After you have finished up in Taupo, it is time to hop back in the car and head for Rotorua – a town where will have the chance for some much needed rest and relaxation. In fact, you will visit the Tarawera Bush Pool – a geothermal hot pool that is located in the middle of a forest. The warm water in the pool comes from underneath the ground. After a few hours in the pool you feel really relaxed.

On your blog, post a picture of yourself doing something relaxing. I find reading really relaxing. Here is a picture of me reading one of my favourite books!

Winter Learning Journey Day 7 Activity 1

1. We can stop littering and chucking rubbish on the ground.

2.We can also do gardening.

3.Finally you have to mow your lawns because it's gonna look ugly and it's gonna be too long.


Dawn breaks on Day #7 – the final day of your Great Kiwi Road Trip. You wake up early, ready to make the long trek back to Auckland. Along the way, Curious Kiwi stops at two beautiful places, Taupo and Rotorua, for you to get out and walk around.
Activity 1: While in Taupo, you go for a walk around the lake and you notice pieces of rubbish floating in the water. You also notice that there is rubbish on the footpath. As you know, it is really important to put rubbish in the bin and keep New Zealand clean and beautiful for generations to come.

With that in mind, it is time think about what you can do to keep New Zealand beautiful. Use your imagination and come up with three things that you could do to make your neighbourhood more beautiful. Post your list on your blog ☺

Winter Learning Journey Day 6 Bonus Activity

1. Rugby World Cup 2011- All Blacks vs France
2.World Cup 2015 – All Blacks vs Argentina
3.All Blacks vs South Africa 2016

Bonus Activity: As part of the Matariki festival, there is a two day Kapa Haka competition. The haka is a traditional war dance that Maori performed before going into battle. The haka is now performed by children/adults in the community and by professional sporting teams, including our national rugby team, the ‘All Blacks.’  The All Blacks have performed various haka over the years. Watch the following three haka videos (1 – 3) and, on your blog, list the haka videos in order from best (#1) to worst (#3). There are no right or wrong answers ☺
At the end of your day at Te Papa, you head to your hotel in the centre of Wellington. You are staying on Cuba Street, one of the coolest streets in the city.

Winter Learning Journey Day 6 Activity 2


1. Mata and the Mysterious Musical Maunga
it says that it's a musical adventure in Aotearoa as Mata climbs a mysterious mountain to find an ancient flute. For tamariki aged 7–14.
I like this because you can play the instruments like the piano,guitar,trumpet,drum,bass and others.

2. Kaumātua Kapa Haka

Activity 2: After visiting Shag Point, you hop back in the van and drive all the way up the east coast of the south island until you reach the town of Picton. You get out of the van and onto the Interislander ferry. It travels back across the Cook Strait to Wellington. Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand and every winter the city hosts a huge Matariki festival to celebrate the Maori New Year. This year part of the festival is being held at Te Papa, a big museum in Wellington.
Read about the Matariki festival at Te Papa.  There are so many different things to see and do at the festival this year. On your blog, tell us about three of the events. You can choose any three events that you wish.

Winter Learning Journey Day 6 Activity 1

It would've been a good day 
arriving on the bay, 
Coming to the beach
keeping people in reach,
Meeting tribe's
They see us arrive.
getting out of the waka
doing a haka,

Activity 1: Let’s imagine that you were on the first waka to arrive at Shag Point. You had never been to New Zealand before and you had no idea what to expect. Write a poem describing how you would have felt when you arrived in New Zealand. Would you have been excited or scared? I would have felt pretty nervous, I reckon…






Winter Learning Journey Day 5 Bonus Activity

I wouldn't go because it's a long way and you'll have to ride for like probably more than 1 hour. I think it will be fun but it might take long.
Bonus Activity: You and your tour group have enjoyed your day in the mountains but you’re ready for a change of scenery. You ask Curious Kiwi to take you to Central Otago, a region of the south island with lots of rolling hills and flat, brown grasslands. While in Central Otago, you decide to join the Otago Central Rail Trail – a 150 km long cycle trail. Curious Kiwi and I (Rachel) cycled the Rail Trail in April and we loved it!

On your blog, tell us whether you would like to cycle the Otago Rail Trail one day. Does it sound like fun? Why or why not?
