Summer learning journey Activity 2: Living on the Edge [4 points]

On your blog, write a letter to your best friend or a family member, telling them about your trip to the Tundra. To earn full points, your letter must have a greeting (e.g Dear...) followed by 5 - 6 sentences of information about your experience.

Dear Mum, my trip to Tundra was an amazing experience. On my trip to Tundra, I learned that Tundra animals tend to have small ears and tails. Some also tend to have large feet to walk on the snow.
I learned a lot from tundra like flowers grow in tight groups to keep the warmth. Everything was so nice over there, but there was one thing that I hated the most in tundra was the cold, did you know that it can go 60 degrees F.  Tundra was a great experience.

Our your blog tell us whether you think logging should be allowed in New Zealand. Be sure to provide at least two reasons to support your argument.

I think New Zealand should not allow loggers because when they cut down the trees they not only affect the precious animals but it affects the oxygen for humans.

Loggers should only cut a little number of trees so the animals still have a place to live, a home.

For this activity you are asked to choose one of your favourite foods. On your blog, write the name of your favourite food and then tell us how to make it. You may need to ask a family member, friend or Google (!) for help, if you do not normally make this food for yourself.

The seals make there snow bank to give birth so every now and then they check the snow banks but if theirs nothing there, there could be a chance the baby was born out of the snow bank where predators live and human disturbance, so if theirs a baby they know they have succeed.

My beast is called Rinosaur, it feels very soft when you relax your hands on it but when you punch it or do anything that threatens it makes the Rinosaurs tenses it's body and makes every body part feels harder than a rock.

It looks like a beast with to big horns in front and purple skin, has a body 2 times a normal adult rhino and 3 times stronger, it looks like an elephant but with 2 huge horns. It smells better than anything you can imagine, it sounds like a trumpet to scare anything away.

Summer learning Journey Activity 1: The Legend of New Zealand [4 points]

These are my fun facts about New Zealand 

 It was the first major nation to have universal suffrage. In 1893 all male and female citizens are legally allowed to vote.

New Zealanders are also called kiwis but kiwi is not a fruit. It is New Zealand’s native flightless bird.

The Maori name of New Zealand is Aotearoa which means the land of the long white cloud.
