Tarawera Expedition

On a beautiful morning, tourists were making there way to see the Pink and White terraces. Then out of the fog came a omen waka ( boat ) with 8 warriors in it. Some Maori people thought it was a sign of bad luck.

9 days later, the ground began to shake and rumble, then suddenly BOOM!!!. Mount Tarawera erupted leaving behind it's mark which was a crack as long as 17 kilometres. The most terrible thing was that it destroyed the world-wide famous Pink and White Terraces. It was really important because it was one of the Great Wonders of the world.

The year 5 and 6 extension group have finished Their spectacular project. Over here you can see that this is my mini animation. It gives you a bit of information about the devastating disaster. So sit back and enjoy.

    Dear Selena, We just watched your mini movie - it was great and we also thought your interesting facts about volcanoes on your blog page was very informative.
    To answer your question on our blog, Mr Burt was sleeping on the floor because he was at a conference in America, where they didn't want to spoil the principals too much - so they made them sleep on the floor in the coridoor in sleeping bags!! Love from Room 2.

  2. Well done Selena. I know that it was hard for you to catch up with all that we'd done. Your movie, while you didn't have the same amount of time as others turned out really well. Your lovely voiceover and graphics were informative.
    Mrs Tele'a
