Summer Learning Journey Day 5 Activity 2

In this activity, I had to choose which activity I would most like to do at the Waitangi treaty grounds...

  1. See a copy of the Treaty of Waitangi inside the treaty house
  2. Walk a 6-kilometer forest walk that leads to Haruru Falls, the natural environment is spectacular.
  3. Walk along the shoreline provides a continuously changing panorama of the bay where Warriors, sailors, and settlers arrived in New Zealand.

In my opinion, the best and most fun thing to would be to go and see a copy of the treaty inside the treaty house. I have gone down to Wellington and I have also been to Te Papa where I have seen the original treaty but I think it would be really cool to go to the place where it was written and signed over 100 years ago.

Hi Harrison,

Another post complete! You are setting a great example for others to follow. As a role model for this programme, it would be great if you could model for others how to properly reference information that you copy from the internet. It can be a bit tricky but it's a really important thing to do. I can also give you full points if you reference information properly and/or put it into your own words. If you would like to copy what a website has said, you need to put the name of the original author and the name of the website where you got the information into your blog.

Let's imagine that you read a story about Bill Kini, the famous NZ boxer, in the newspaper and you wanted to copy and paste some information from the article into your blog. You would first copy the information that you want to use and then, in brackets, after the information you need to tell us where you got it. For example, imagine that you copied this sentence from the article:

Born in Winton, Southland, in 1937, Bill Kini was of Ngai Tahu blood, one of three children.

You need to include the following reference after the sentence: Born in Winton, Southland, in 1937, Bill Kini was of Ngai Tahu blood, one of three children. (Tim Eves, New Zealand Herald, http://www.nzherald.co.nz/northern-advocate/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503448&objectid=11075600

I know that this can be tricky so feel free to send some through and I'll do my best to answer them.

You have some great information in your post telling us lots about the war. Keep up the fantastic blogging Harrison!

Cadence :)
