Mighty Mariners

This term our topic is called Mighty Mariners. Our focus question is: What does it take to explore the sea? Our learning outcomes are: to explain why people left their homes to explore the oceans and new lands, to explain one or two different technology used by early explorers and to explain and describe how a chosen group of people prepared for sea travel.

This is going to be an exciting term because we also have the Life Education bus with our friend Harold here for the next two weeks. We will also be practising for our school Cross Country competition. We've also got a trip to the Maritime Museum in Auckland and our school wide Pasifika at the end of the term.

If you can help us with any ideas or can answer the above questions and learning outcomes, please keep visiting us and don't forget to leave us a comment!!

Hi Room10,
I loved the way you all told the world who is a explorer and why they
were a explorer. I know two explorers
they names are Captin James Cook and
Christopher Columbus. Because my teacher tells us all about Captin James Cook in her chapter book.
