Activity 2: Your tour of New Zealand is going to start right here in Auckland. Watch the Tourist video for Auckland to learn about the awesome things that you can see and do in the city. Once you’ve finished, choose your favourite five activities from the video and list them on your blog.   
  1. Elliott Stables
  2. Rainbow end
  3. Auckland domain
  4. AUCKLAND ZOO YESSSS Sorry Auckland Zoo
  5. Sky tower
Bonus Activity: Now it’s time to start your tour! Curious Kiwi decides to start by taking you on a short tour through downtown Auckland. You stop at the Sky Tower, the tallest building in all of New Zealand. When you look up, you see a huge New Zealand flag on the top of the tower. This flag was created back in 1902. That makes the New Zealand flag 115 years old!

Last year, the Prime Minister of New Zealand suggested that we should replace the flag with a new, updated design. He invited everyone in New Zealand to come up with their own flag design and submit it.
For this activity, it is your turn to design a new flag. Use any drawing programme that you wish.  Once you have finished, post a copy of your design on your blog. Describe the flag, in words, below the picture. Be sure to tell us what is on the flag and what inspired your design.

This is my flag I have created, I decided to start from scratch and make it one a google drawing. Here I have the flag I have created, I wanted it to stay similar to the one we have already, so I stuck with Blue Background, The Union Jack, and the 4 stars. The changes I have added it the start are not Just red and also Photos in the stars, Oh and the words We are one in the middle. Anyways the Brown Star represents our Beautiful Country, the Black one means to never stop asking why, the white one means to love one another and lastly the last one means to stick together. Oh and the reason why I have done different shapes and color for the stars is because it means we come in different shapes and colours pretty much.
The text is pretty self explanatory!!

Bonus Activity = 8 points

I am so sorry if there is mistakes and edit difficulties.

Kia ora Cherise and welcome back to the Winter Learning Journey blogging programme. I am so happy that you have joined us again!!!

I really enjoyed reading through your blog post. I particularly liked the flag that you created using Google Drawing. It was colourful and really thoughtful. I like the way that you incorporated elements of the current flag in your design. I also like the message that you chose ('We Are One').

I hope that you will continue to post great blogs over the next two weeks. I always love reading what you have written! I had to smile when I read your final comment, 'I am sorry if there is mistakes and text difficulties.' I hope that you never worry about that. The purpose of the programme is to practice and to improve your reading/writing. Mistakes are inevitable (they are going to happen) but, with practice, you will make fewer and fewer mistakes!

Keep up the great work and the awesome effort.

Rachel :)
