Day #4 : Activity 2 - Winter Learning Journey (Swimming with the Sharks)

Winter Learning Journey

My Summary about the movie trailer,
A novel called Whales rider was written by Witi Ihimaera, which explains how the ancestor (Paikea) riding on the back of a whale and landed on this land. Ancestor said “In every generation, every first born child is a new chief of the tribe”
The chief had a daughter stead of a son named Paikea, he was to lead the tribe and become a chief, but he had become a she. She challenged herself and changed to become appropriate enough to be a leader of the tribe. It shows in the photos the scene of how she struggled to learn the cultural event on land and at sea. The photo with them in the bicycle shows me the bond between her and her generation.

I rate this movie 5 = Excellent Movie.
Activity 2: After a morning of learning about beached whales in Golden Bay, you and your group are driven to a nearby town, Nelson, to watch a special movie calledWhale rider.’ It is a famous movie about a young girl who was born and raised in New Zealand. Watch the following movie trailers for Whale Rider: Whale Rider trailer #1 and Whale Rider Trailer #2 and then write a summary of the movie on your blog. What is it about? Be sure to also give the movie a rating out of 5 based on the trailer [1 = bad movie, 2 = okay movie, 3 = pretty good, 4 = good movie, 5 = excellent movie].

When ‘Whale Rider’ finishes, you and your tour group enjoyed a delicious meal in downtown Nelson before heading back to your hotel. You need to go to bed early because you have to get up at 4:30 a.m. the next morning to travel back to Farewell Spit to see a group (pod) of Hector’s Dolphins. It is going to be an early morning!
