Summer Learning Journey - Wk1 Day 2 Bonus Activity

Summer Learning Journey 

Day 2 - It's all in a day's work - 1800's
Bonus Activity - Special Meals

Back then in the 1800s, Maori's ate a simple diet. They ate foods that they can catch in water or grow on land. They did not have access to a supermarket to buy food for meals like we do eg. Tomato sauce but they could grow Tomato's and mush them up.

Here is a pic of my favourite meal:
Corn fritters

It is like pancakes but with sweet corn in them. This is one of my favourites because I love corn, pikelets and pancakes, sometimes without corn but with peaches & ice cream!!!

Here's how to make it: 
Sweet Corn Fritters

3/4 C flour
1 t baking powder 
1/2 t salt and pepper
1 egg
440g  tin cream style corn
2 T oil

To make:
Sift flour, baking powder, salt and pepper to taste, into a bowl. add egg, mixing to combine. Stir in sweet corn. Heat oil in a frying pan. Drop tablespoons full of corn mixture into pan. Cook until golden then turn and cook other side. Once cooked let sit on a plate with a paper towel to remove excess oil. Serve hot. 

I like to eat these with tomato sauce or dip into sweet chilly sauce, with a side of salad and oven baked roasties.

My Summer Learning Journey - Wk 1 Day 1 Activity 2

My Summer Learning Journey

Day 1 - Arriving in New Zealand (1800-1870)
Activity 2 - Setting Sail.

The waka that we travelled in.
Dear Peter

I'm writing to tell you about my journey to New Zealand. I was nine years old when we left our country and I was sixteen when I got here, it was a bumpy long ride with my family and lots of other families from our town. I didn't really want to leave but it was the right thing to do, I miss all my friends. It was very cold at night, we would lie down and spot all of the pictures out of the stars,we had big buckets in the middle of the waka to scoop all the water out after the big waves hit us. We had lots of fish to eat, all the fish we wanted, we would go fishing every night when they come out to hunt for their food. We left to go find a new land because there was not enough space for us so we decided to leave and give someone else our house, we would start a new community with our own rules and good food. Please write back. 

Yours sincerely,

Maui fishing on upside down NZ map

Today I had to learn the history of a famous man in Maori - He's called Maui.
I signed up for this back when school ended. But I've not had time to do this. When I looked at what I had to do I was like, "That's easy." I don't know why I didn't start this sooner. Then after partly reading the one story of Maui, I found out it was a lot harder. I was confused. I didn't understand it. I also didn't want to do this. I was sad and didn't know what I found interesting about him at all. I'm feeling stressed. I need to google search some images so I can understand the story a bit more. I found one picture below that I like and it looks like Maui catching a huge stingray (North Island) from his boat (South Island) and the boat anchor (Stewart Island).

Fact #1 
He didn't give in to his bully brothers.

Fact #2
Maui wanted to prove himself and to his elders that he will get the fish

Fact # 3
maui punched him self in the noise to get blood for the hook for bait becase his brothers laughed at him evern harder

My dream was to fly. Now i just need to find the cloud and make it rain. suddenly there is 3 other planes attacking me randomly the bigger plane apers shooting the 3 planes in one shot and we were fighting over the one cloud until i had put my special water changer on it and then I got shot
