Taking care of the environment
Not wasting the water
Remembering to put our rubbish into the bin, not the ocean.
Not polluting the water + air.
Planting beautiful flowers and plants
Looking after the trees
Not putting plastic and plastic bags in the ocean.
We can make our neighbourhood beautiful by:
Taking care our Environment
Caring for the trees
Mowing the lawn
Cleaning up our house
Planting Beautiful flowers in the garden.

- We Believe lanterns are a symbol of the stars.
- The focus of Matariki celebrations link in Maori history.
- Matariki means star cluster. So they make lanterns to show the stars and light.
- "each woven star represents light,hope,courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence in our world," Ms Talia Pau.
- The stars are to support the commonwealth games vision of a peaceful and successful global community.
- The fireworks marks the start of the Maori New Year.
- Remembers the people,Language,Spirituality and History.

If I arrived in New Zealand in the waka I would feel nervous because there would be a lot of Maori people that would be staring at me which makes me uncomfortable.I would feel excited at the same time because I would greet Maori people with a hongi.
I would like to go cycle on the Otago rail trail because it looks fun and you can ride your bike for fitness and run.
It does sound fun because you can ride your bike which sounds fun and you take pictures.
It sounds fun because there is another layer on the bottom and you can walk there and look all the way down which is scary.

As I was tying my shoe laces I looked up and Curious Kiwi and the group weren't there so I walked around the forest while I was walking I saw a black coat on the ground so I went and picked it up and it said Charlie Springer so I left on the ground so the owner can come back and get it.While I was walking to find Curious Kiwi and the group the next thing that I saw was a lot of shadows run pass so I went to see who it was but it was just Curious Kiwi and the group. Then I sighed and I was finally safe.

The movie is about a 12 year old girl called Paikea that wanted to join chiefdom but she couldn't because she was a girl and it was only for males so she joined poi ball dancing with girls.When they went to the beach her papa (Koro) saw a tail of a whale so Paikea hopped on the whale and travelled somewhere just like how her ancestor did.
I give this movie a 3 because it was interesting and engaging.

What the local people did to try help the whales :
The local people went and put towels on the whales and got buckets and filled it with sea water and splashed it on the whales so the whales can stay hydrated.
They tried to drag the whales in the water but they were heavy and the water was too shallow.
then they made a hole around the whales and filled buckets of sea water to keep them alive.
Some where fortunate to get rescued
Majority of them didn't make it.

There is 4.4 million New Zealanders, 69% are Europeans, 14.6% are Maori, 9.2% are Asians.
European pioneers were brave and independent before the farms and settlements were found.
Jet boat and the Bungy jump are the most famous Kiwi inventions.
