Day 5: One step at a time Activity 2

Winter Learning Journey (100% Pure New Zealand)

Activity 2: After the adventure at The Lewis Pass Scenic Reserve, you are pretty happy to get back into the shuttle van and continue with your road trip. Over the next few hours, you travel up and over the Southern Alps, arriving in the city of Christchurch to eat lunch. You have a delicious meal at a café downtown and then hop back into the van to travel to Twizel, a small town at the base of Aoraki-Mt Cook. Mt Cook is the largest mountain in New Zealand. It is also the mountain where Sir Edmund Hillary trained for his climb up Mt Everest the tallest mountain in the world. Sir Edmund Hillary is very famous because he was the first person to ever reach the top of Mt Everest!
Now it is your turn to learn about a famous New Zealander. Use Google to research one famous person from New Zealand and then create a DLO and post it on your blog. Be sure to include: 1. The name of the famous person, 2. Where they were born, 3. Why they are famous, and 4. Two other interesting facts about them.


  1. Ola Falakiko,

    I love your DLO, it's fantastic! I really love the way you used your initiative to find information about Russell Ira Crowe. I'm so surprised that he is from New Zealand. I did not know that. You listed interesting facts about events in his life but I really love how you added quotes directly from his movies. So clever!

    This is Outstanding. Keep it up!


  2. Hey Kiko(Falakiko),
    I am happy that you and others as well have been blogging for the Winter Learning Journey competition. I really like that in your DLO or infographic you have included very much detail about Russell Crowe.

    Great Work and carry it on!
