Museum Trip

Room ten was at the museum. One of the places we visited was the volcano room. In the volcano room there were some kind of different rocks that come out of a volcano. I tried to lift one rock up out of 3. I was trying really hard but it was really heavy. When I lifted the rock up I was sweating. Next, I wrote down facts about a volcano. This is one of the facts: Volcanologists might also use breathing equipment.
Before we started doing those things we went into the volcano house. It showed the news and it showed the ash pouring out of the volcano. Next room ten went out of the volcano house and went to Maori Natural History gallery.

Auckland Museum Visit

On Wednesday the 29th of August 2012 the seniors went on a trip to the Auckland Museum. When I got in to the museum I saw a lot of galleries throughout the whole museum.

After we went through the fashion areas we went to the Volcanic area to look at the different kinds of rocks that come out of the volcano. When I finished looking at the different rocks room 10 went into a room with a big screen. Room 10 had to sit down on the ground and watch the news. On the news there was a lady talking to a man to ask him if he knew that the eruption was going to be true or false. There was a large amount of smoke coming towards us in the screen. The building started to tilt. There was a strange noise vibrating  the whole room. The music was getting louder and louder and louder.

In the afternoon room 10 went into the Maori areas to learn about the things we would need  take on a journey to New Zealand in a waka. We also had to learn about the first person who followed an octopus to New Zealand. Our tutors’ names’ are Awhina and Leanne. Just before we went into the Hotunui Marae we had to take our shoes of, to show respect to the teacher and also to the ancestor of the marae. After that Awhina asked Timote what  his name was and what his father’s and grandpa’s name was. Finally Awhina said to room 10 that its lunch time. After that we had to go to the front of the museum to say bye.
