Canterbury Museum!

Our inquiry theme for term three is Te Waipounamu and Kiwiana. To active our prior knowledge and to get our brains thinking we visited Canterbury museum. As a part of our visit to the museum we were able to have a session with Marissa, who also took us on our journey to Riccarton Bush. This time, Marissa was teaching us all about Kiwiana and why this term is used to reflect our kiwi culture. We were also able to check out the Paua house, which is an important feature of our kiwi history. After having lunch in the Garden, we went on a scavenger hunt throughout the museum in teams. We had such an awesome time, and it has set us up for our inquiry learning for the rest of the term. Thank you to all those that helped us out, especially Mrs Manderson, who came along with us.
