Visiting Tane Mahuta


  1. Kia ora Ayla!

    You have made a beautiful slideshow for this activity. I love the imagery that you have used in your main, title slide. Where did you find it? Are you able to pop back and insert a link to the site where you found it? I would love to be able to use it in my work next year. It reminds me of the beauty and the peacefulness of walking in the bush.

    Speaking of the bush, I would absolutely love to go to visit Tane Mahuta one day. Apparently, the tree can be found a few hundred metres off of the road and is very majestic to look at. It is between 1250 and 2500 years old. Crazy 'eh?! I do have to wonder what life was life in New Zealand when Tane Mahuta was just a little seedling. What do you think it was like here in New Zealand so many years ago?

    I hope that you'll have time to write back, to share your ideas about New Zealand and to give us the link to the photo that you used in your slideshow.

    Bye for now!

  3. Hi Ayla,

    It’s Leslie here, writing to you from Canada where it’s very cold and snowy. Hard for you to imagine, I’m sure! I’m a member of the Summer Learning Journey team and I notice that you've done some of the activities in the Summer Learning Journey program - good for you!

    Christmas is over now so I hope you've had a lovely time! and I hope that you'll think about doing some more of the activities. It's so lovely to have you participating!

    There are still 3 full weeks left in the Summer Learning Journey program. I’ll look for your postings and write back to you from Canada.

    Meanwhile, have a really happy summer holiday!!


  4. Kia Ora Ayla,

    What an awesome piece of writing about the Tane Mahuta tree. I, personally would also like to visit Tane Mahuta's tree as I would like to find out more about this amazing tree as well as exploring mother nature around us. The tips or reasons you have given us was awesome. What was the most challenging part about this activity, why?

    Enjoy your holidays and keep up the good work.

    Kind Regards,

  5. Hi Ayla...great to see you blogging on the SLJ. There's still some time to complete the activities before school begins - how many more can you get done? Keep up the great work.
