Turning around to see no one behind me, everyone left. Who knew that my group was in a rush. I quickly looked both ways still no sight of my group. As I stood on small branches, leaves rushing through my face still no sight of my group, I was scared. The sun was soon to be gone and the moon was about to shine. I ran up the stairs with my feet aching. I got to the top to find my group getting ready to leave, "phewwww" I sighed with relief.

Task(Activity 2): On your blog, tell us whether you agree that New Zealand should be predator free. In your opinion, is it right to kill all of the predators (eg. possums) or should we just leave them alone? On your blog tell us what you think and give us, at least, three reasons why you think this way.
I disagree that we should kill all predators:
Here are some ways of helping this problem:
Firstly because they are animals they have a reason/right to keep living.
Secondly because they are God’s creatures.
Thirdly because violence is never the answer.
Gather/find all the predators and send them back to Australia
Or take them to a zoo in New Zealand and treat them well

School is about to start again for a new year. Yay! Imagine that you walked into your classroom and your teacher asked you to stand up in front of the class and talk about the country that you visited. On your blog, you can:
Post a short video clip of yourself talking about the country that you visited and the things that you learned (1 – 2 minutes)
Type out what you would say to the class if you had 1 – 2 minutes to speak.
I would choose to type out what I would be saying.
The country I visited was Germany. I’ve learnt a lot of different things like that they invited Mexico to join WW1 by attacking the U.S, for breakfast they sometimes eat Brotchen (bread roll), cheese and salami platter. I’ve learnt that ¡buenos días means Good Morning and adios means goodbye. Also that sausages, potato salad, sauerkraut (sour cabbage) are their most famous food.
After four full weeks of planning and travelling, you are now safely back in New Zealand. You have now had some time to relax and to reflect on your experiences. What are two things that you have learned from your travels? On your blog, tell us about any two things that you have learned.
I have learnt that traveling to places you can meet a lot of new people. Maybe someone that you will always talk to in life or maybe someone who would change you.
I have also learnt that there are a lot of beautiful things in every country, some things even meaningful.
On your blog, tell us what you would choose to have for your special meal.
If it was me, I would ask for homemade hamburgers with ketchup, American-style mustard, onions, tomato and lettuce; Cajun-style wedges with tomato sauce and Greek salad with cherry tomatoes and lots of feta cheese. For dessert I would ask for vanilla cake with chocolate icing and neapolitan ice cream. What would you ask for?

Let’s imagine that the neighboring town was about 30 kilometers away. There are a number of beautiful villages and interesting things to see along the way. You have four options for this trip. You can take a:
Train – 25 minute ride; No stops along the way; $12 for the trip (return)
Bus – 45 minute ride; Two stops along the way to look at interesting villages; $8 for the trip (return)
Scooter – 1 hour ride; Unlimited number of stops; $5 for the trip (return)
Bicycle – 2 hour ride; Unlimited number of stops but there are some hills along the way; $1 (return)
I would use a Train because I would get there faster/no traffic. Also I don’t think that $12 was that much.
On your blog, post a picture of the animals and tell us a bit about them. What are they called? Where do they live? What do they eat?
Kiwi, They are known as the animal of New Zealand, the bird. All kiwis live in New Zealand. It depends on the type of kiwi that you are talking about when it comes to habitat preference. They eat worms.

Aim for a blog post of 8 - 10 sentences in length. You can do it!
I had just entered the zoo when, all of a sudden, I saw a really huge truck that had a huge cage inside. I was eager to find out what was inside so I followed the cage into something that looked like a forest. I heard the cage open and the door close. I was trapped in here! “ Help, Help !!! I’m stuck ” The thing I followed was running up to me, it was a really huge Gorilla. “ Urghhhh, Help! Help! It’s coming!?! ” But the Gorilla was actually trying to help me. It lifted me through the window, so the forest was his habitat, it seemed to be another cage but with trees and leaves inside. I thanked the Gorilla and ran out.
