Week One - Day One SLJ: In the Beginning







ACTIVITY 1
This story dates back Way way back about 700 years ago. New zealand was
discovered, and settled by a group of polynesians according to most people in new zealand.
They had to master teamwork, because if they use team than that will make their dream work.
So what they did was teamwork, and they assembled a very special culture that we still know today maori.
There is a maori dance which is named the haka, there are more than one haka. The haka first haka was made in 19th century.

ACTIVITY 2
The first settlers to come to New Zealand must have been really brave! They had to leave their own homes,
and go sail thousands of miles across the ocean. It is amazing that they have did that. They sailed on a boat called a waka to new zealand.

From this very day people actually still use this boat called a waka to go places to archive stuff, and for special things like ceremonies and more.
They used it for waka ama. Waka ama is a competition where ladies, and men compete to get to the finish line first  
Here's a video WAKA AMA.







Week One: In the Beginning (1800-1870)

Cool Kiwi Fact #1: Did you know that the Māori name for New Zealand is Aotearoa? Loosely translated this means ‘land of the long white cloud.’

Day 1: Arriving in New Zealand…

Activity 1: The First Settlers

It is widely believed that the first people to arrive in New Zealand came from Polynesia. Most historians believe that they landed in New Zealand
over 700 years ago. Although they were originally from many different countries, these settlers learned to live together
and, eventually, formed their own distinct culture known as ‘Māori.’  Māori have their own language, traditions, and culture.

Follow this link to read a short story about a famous man in Māori mythology – Maui. On your blog,
post three facts that you learned about this interesting man. What other stories have you heard about Maui?







Activity 2: Setting Sail

The first settlers to come to New Zealand must have been really brave! They had to leave their original homes a
nd sail thousands of miles across the ocean on a special boat called a ‘waka’ to reach New Zealand.

Imagine that you were on board one of the wakas. On your blog, write a short letter to a friend telling them about your voyage to New Zealand.
In the letter be sure to tell them how you feel about moving to a new country. If it was me, I would have felt really nervous…


Bonus Activity: Waka Ama
To this day, the people of New Zealand still use waka.
Instead of using their waka to transport them from one place to another, they sometimes use waka in special events and in sporting competitions
such as Waka Ama. Both boys and girls compete in Waka Ama boat races.

I would like to be a waka ama cause they made it look easy but it was not and felt how hard it was for the first settlers to travel thousands of mile
s paddling day and night it would be amazing if I was a waka ama I would try my hardest to paddle as fast as
I can to paddle and that sport would be about fitness.

Task Description: This is the beginning where a group of Polynesians first settled new Zealand.
It is pretty amazing that they have done this.
