Me: Heneliena
I am a night owler I love to say up late every single day.
Sister: Rhonda and Fe’ao
My sister Rhonda and Fe’ao are night owlers like me. We stay up all night blasting our favourite music on our speaker and tell jokes to each other.

My two brothers are night owlers because they literally stay up all night and play a game called Fortnite on their Xbox.

Activity 3: The Midnight Zone [10 points]
Let’s imagine that the average adult can lift 25 kg and the average child can lift 15 kg. How many adults and children will it take to move the giant squid into its new room at Te Papa? [Note: There is more than one right answer to this question.] On your blog, tell us how you will solve this maths problem. You can write your answer in words, use a Sketchpad image or post a video explaining how you would figure it out. Be sure to give us your final answer.

The squid normally weighs 495kg. My possible answer would be 40 people because I just went 25 + 15 which equals to 40 people.

I saw so many beautiful things as I was on top of the mountains. I hope one day I would be able to come here again with you. Wish you were with me here.

Yours Sincerely,

Activity 3: Going, going … Gone [10 points]
On your blog, post a description of life in New Zealand in 2018. Please remember that the people who read your post will have never been to New Zealand or even seen a picture, so it is your job to ‘paint a picture’ of New Zealand using your words. You can also post pictures if you wish. Be sure to fully attribute the pictures.

Life in New Zealand to me is a dream come true because during the summer times you can play so many fun activities such as going for a swim at the beach, play sports or go for jogs. You can also go hiking and see so many views as you are up in the mountains. There are so many fun things you can do in New Zealand. There is o many nature in New Zealand.
