Day #3: Wild Eyes : Activity 3

Bonus Activity: A really cool new website called Wild Eyes has recently been launched in New Zealand. It is a programme for students who want to complete fun activities (called ‘missions’), take pictures and post them on the Wild Eyes site. For this bonus activity, go to the Wild Eyes site and complete the ‘Giant Moa Discovery’ mission. To earn full points you must post a picture of your Moa on the Wild Eyes website and on your personal blog site. The Wild Eyes team and I can’t wait to see what you create!

Breaking news in Mt Wellington, I (Aaliyahna) recently have made a discovery of, what it seems to be a Baby Moa! I had just finished exploring outside, in my backyard, until I decided to dig for anything random! Then I came across 3 bones! They looked identical to a Moa, but not a giant moa, a baby moa!

Hola Ana!,
This by far is my favourite post from you!. You're a very creative girl!. I love your handmade Moa that you made our of bones, leaves and dirt. Your baby Moa is excellently made. Could you tell me some facts about the Moa bird?, i'm quite curious now. Keep up the great work Ana!, continue to wow me with your excellent work!.

Ciao Luisa!

Thank you so much! I love your posts as well. I appreciate it.
Firstly their weight, Moa's weigh upto 510 pounds, depends on size. As we learnt/read about Hunter, our old novel, Moa's were hunted by the Maoris for food! I mean their is a lot to learn about moa's.

Your Sincerely,

I am seriously amused to see the moa you have made Aali. Very creative indeed as Luisa has said. FYI the word moa is what Samoans call chicken. So in my view as a Samoan you used moa bones to make a replica of a moa :). Malie Aaliyahna. On another note the moa lived and roamed free in New Zealand but they were hunted for their flesh and also feathers. Do you remember our novel from Term 1 Hunter? Joy Cowley included some learning about the moa in that novel. Loving how our past learning links with present learning.

Ni Hao Aaliyahna,

I just wanted to come by and say your Moa is really interesting because the way you used those leaves to make your Moa is really cute!

Keep up the hard work your doing Aalyihana

Best Wishes
Good Luck and see you at Term 3

Hi Aaliyahna
I like how you added the part where you said not to take your post seriously. I wonder how many people would believe you if you did find a real Moa? Keep up the good work.
