Week 2 Day 4 Activity 1: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Arguably, one of the most dramatic and spectacular (beautiful) places to visit in New Zealand is Milford Sound. It has been referred to as the ‘eighth wonder of the world.’ It is a beautiful fiord (steep valley) that was formed when big pieces of ice (glaciers) melted. The melted glaciers created a beautiful river that is surrounded by dramatic cliffs and snow-capped mountains. People who visit Milford Sound are able to take a boat cruise through the middle of the fiord, walk around the area on the Milford Track or fly above the fiord as part of a private helicopter tour.Let’s imagine that you had the chance to visit Milford Sound by boat, foot (walking) or air (helicopter). Which option would you prefer?
I would like to go there and have a helicopter tour mainly because I would love to go in a helicopter ride. The fiord will be interesting to go there as well.

Week 2 Day 3 Activity 3: The Midnight Zone

It is the only specimen of its kind in the entire world! This squid weighs approximately 500 kg. In 2018, a team at Te Papa decided to move the giant squid from one area of the museum to another.

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.]

25 x 4 = 100   100 + 75 = 175 / 175 x 2 = 350
15 x 5 75        10x 15=children 8x 25=adults
25 x 6 = 150   

350 + 150 = 500


10 adults and 5 chilren
