Winter Learning Journey - Activity 1

Fact 1

The Past four hundred years before Christopher Columbus and the rest of Europe were scared about falling off the edge of the world ( Which was scary), Maori people sailed a lot of miles across the unknown Pacific going on canoes and became the first place of Aotearoa (New Zealand). To this day, Maori culture is a core part of New Zealand’s national finder.

Fact 2
Becoming one of the locals could be really hard.But once you get to know people more they could even want to be more than friends, They could be be BFF with you. But when your in New Zealand it i really easy to become friends with other people. This might even be your favorite part on your visit. With your new friend you guys could hang out anywhere you guys might even be long life friends.

This is my first activity for the winter learning journey. What we had to d was we had to go  n this site click facts and then find 2 facts about New Zealand. For the winter learning journey we are going to find out facts about NZ.


  1. Hi Marieta
    You've found some cool facts! Also did you know that the people that came to New Zealand were Polynesians?
    Great work on finding the facts keep it up!

  2. Hi Marieta!

    I love your fact number 2! It is so true that New Zealand is such a friendly place and it is easy to make friends! It can be scary at first, but once you get to know people, they are so welcoming and friendly. I have some great Kiwi friends in Auckland who made me feel at home when I moved here.

    I hope you have had experiences like this in New Zealand!

    Great work Marieta, keep it up!

    Nicky :)
