Day 2 - Activity 2

Activity 2: As an island nation, New Zealand is completely surrounded by water. It is the perfect place for people who like to swim or to sail! While in Dargaville, recovering from your busy day of sightseeing, you notice a number sailboats going by. One of the boats is manned by a young German girl named Laura Dekker. At the age of fourteen she sailed around the world the entire world by herself. You can watch a short video clip about her adventures here: Laura Dekker sailing trip.   
Let’s imagine that you had the chance to interview Laura while in Dargaville. On your blog post five questions that you would ask her.

  2. Kia Orana Courtney,

    Welcome to the Winter Learning Journey programme. My name is Jacinta and I am so exciting to be blogging with you through the school holidays. It is going to be so much fun.

    For Day 2 activity 2, I just want to say how proud I am of the effort you put into generating questions that will help you to find out more about Laura. Your questions show how concerned and open minded you are about what happens in the big wide ocean.

    I look forward to seeing more amazing work from you. You are off to a great start. Keep it up!
