DAY 1: In the Beginning...

Activity 1: The Legend of New Zealand

To learn more cool facts about New Zealand, check out the Tourism NZ website. Read the fun facts posted on the website and choose your ‘Top 3.’ On your blog, post your ‘Top 3 Fun Facts’ about NZ in your own words.

Here are three interesting facts about New Zealand.  Did you know...

1.  According to the Tourism NZ website I was using, there are only two official languages in this country, English and Maori. However, according to Wikipedia, New Zealand has three official languages which are, English, Maori, and New Zealand Sign Language.

2. Gisborne, which is on the east coast of New Zealand is the first city in New Zealand and the world to see the sunrise.   The reason for this is because it is about 496 km away from the International Date Line. The International Date Line is an imaginary line that runs between the North and South Pole.  

3. According to the Tourism NZ website, New Zealand is one of three countries that have two official national anthems.  Wikipedia claims New Zealand and Denmark are the only two countries that have two official national anthems.  New Zealand's two national anthems are "God Defend New Zealand" and "God Save the Queen".

My Opinion

I am 50/50 about foreign land buyers/owners being allowed to sell NZ bottled water overseas. I agree because it is something that is natural to NZ it is NZ made and is something that most people need in their lives. But I also Disagree because well some countries are less fortunate than us, some countries have water but they either don’t have enough or the water is just very, very, very dirty. The green party is reviewing the bill.

Cyber smart Assesment

  • What it means to be cyber smart and why it is important
Cybersmart is being aware of the dangers you come across online. It is Important because you could get hacked and become a cyberbully.

  • Two things you learned about being cyber smart and how you could apply it to your own life.
One thing I learned was that being cyber smart can affect your future life and another thing I learned was that I could apply this so I can have a better life and opportunity at getting into a job.

  • Describe one of each:
    • A personal strategy a young person can do to help themselves if they are being cyberbullied.
Something a person could do is Talk to someone such as their Parents,
    • An interpersonal strategy a young person can do to help their friend who is being cyberbullied. Buying them some food or play some sports or play fortnite with them can help them speak out.
    • A personal strategy a young person who finds themselves bullying other young people can do to help build their self-esteem and change their behaviour.
Talk to them, Be their Friend, Help them Out.

Things you could include:
  • Tips to give to the year 6s about how they could become cyber smart

Things some year 6s should do is focus less on Social Media, and focus more on school and family. They could become cyber smart by not playing dumb stuff online and to stop watching stupid things.

Migration Model

This diagram shows the part of the regular majority of people and counter stream flow between Tokelau and NZ. There are many different push and pull reasons people move/have moved from Tokelau to NZ. Push reasons are things that make people leave their place of origins negative things, for example having to move due a war that may be happening. Pull reasons are the positive reasons that attract people to a new destination. Like wanting to move for better education, useful things/valuable supplies and technology. The (blocking or stopping things) people might face when moving are money, ( not having enough ) not being able to find work. The mainstream flow are the people moving to NZ from Tokelau and the counter stream flow are people who are moving back home. The mainstream flow is bigger because there are more people wanting to be in a bigger place/more advanced place.
