Week 1 A place To Stand Day: 5

Some people like logging because it creates jobs for the loggers and generates money for New Zealand while others are against (opposed to) logging. Many of those opposed are worried that logging will damage the environment. It might also force animals who live in trees (eg. owls) to find new homes.
What do you think about logging?
On your blog tell us whether you think logging should be allowed in New Zealand. Be sure to provide at least two reasons to support your argument.

Activity 2: Living on the Edge [4 points]
While it can get quite cold in New Zealand, it rarely drops below freezing (00C). Most of the time the temperature in New Zealand is pretty mild. This is not the case in the tundra. The tundra is an area of land (biome) that is cold, dry and completely treeless. Did you know that the average temperature in the tundra is -280C?
Over the past few years, however, the temperature in the tundra has been rising and the weather has been changing. Let’s imagine that your teacher decides to take you on a class trip to the tundra before the weather changes too much and you aren’t able to go.

On your blog, write a letter to your best friend or a family member telling them about your trip to the tundra. To earn full points your letter must have a greeting (eg. Dear…) followed by 5 – 6 sentences of information about what your experience.

Dear mum and dad I had a great time 😁 at turndra with my friends. We had lots of fun The weather was changing a little😪. But the most thing that I am thinking🤔 about is that we had fun👍 when I arrived their I loved that the mountains were so big and huge 😱. I also liked the animals because they were cute🤗 it was awesome. I hope that I get to go again with my friends or even i can go with you mum and dad ❤️️. As you can see look at these landscapes

  1. Good afternoon Mathew,

    It's Georgia again! What a great letter for your parents. What animals do they have in the Tundra? Could you google and comment below? :-) Is the Tundra a place you'd like to visit in real life one day?

    Well done another great activity!
    Nga mihi, Georgia.
