Easter Learning Journey 3

For today's task we had to describe some where in New Zealand that we would like to visit. Let's find out where Yolanda picked!

I think that I might wanna go and visit Tane Mahuta because it looks like it is going to have heaps of trees. Trees are important because that it how you breath, if there are no trees then you will not be alive. I also heard that it is a place that looks just like  a forest. When you go there, it will be like you are going for a  hike.

Did you know that  it is New Zealand's forests provided Māori with rich inspiration for sayings and expressions, as well as the means of life? Tāne, the god of the forest, separated earth and sky and let light into the world. These actions became the basis for important rituals and oratory on the marae. 

Did you know what Tāne Mahuta, also called Lord of the Forest, is a giant kauri tree (Agathis australis) in the Waipoua Forest of Northland Region, New Zealand? It is named for the Māori god of forests and of birds.  Access to Tāne Mahuta could be restricted to paid tour groups only, in an effort to control kauri dieback.
