Week 2 Water, Water, Everywhere Day: 4

DAY 4: Spectacular, Spectacular

Activity 1: Planes, Trains and Automobiles [4 points]
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?
On your blog tell us which of the three options you would take to explore Milford Sound. Be sure to tell us why you have chosen this option.
I would  choose explore Milford Sound by flying in a helicopter. My reason why i want to chose a helicopter is that we can see more of
Spectacular mountains and other places and things will flying up hight rather than running or walking or in a boat. This last reason I want to share is that i haven't been in one. 

Activity 2: It’s All in the Name [4 points]
Rotorua is one of New Zealand’s most popular tourist destinations. It is a city filled with incredible forests, mountain biking tracks, lakes, and geothermal wonders, including hot springs (geysers) and mud pools. One of the most famous geothermal pools is called the Devil’s Bath at Wai-o-Tapu Thermal Wonderland. It is a neon green pool of stinky water.

Over the years, people have suggested that we come up with a new name for the pool. What do you think we should call it? Take a minute to let your creative juices flow.
On your blog, give us a list of three to five options for the name of this geothermal pool. Put a star (*) beside the name that you like the most.
  • Fetid Lagoon  
  • Demons Pool
  • Noisome Lake
Activity 3: Picture Perfect [10 points]

While New Zealand is home to some beautiful waterfalls, there are a number of stunning waterfalls in places like Canada and South Africa. In Canada, the largest waterfall is called Niagara Falls. It sits on the border between Canada and the United States of America. Thousands of tourists flock (go) to Niagara Falls every year to see the falls and to have their picture taken in front of this natural wonder. Over the past few years people have started taking ‘selfies’ and posting them online. Do you ever take selfies?
For this activity, choose one of the following three selfies. From left to right: Selfie #1, Selfie #2, Selfie #3

On your blog, write a short story about what you think is happening in the picture. Be sure to tell us where you think the people are and what you think they were doing at the time that they stopped to pose for the selfie. To earn full points, the story must be 8 – 10 sentences long.
The selfie 2 I think he is in some thing which I can't explain when I look at it i think that the white long thing is where you need to climb but i think the must be really long way to climb so there must be some kind of short cut to get there. Wait i searched it up and i just found out that Christ the redeemer which is in Brazil as you can see the long arm and the head. The Christ redeeemer is a very tall statue which is well-knowed as the 15th tallest statue. Did you know it is 30.1 meters 99 ft tall not including its 6 meters 20 feet pedestal and 19 meters 62 feet wide. When you look at the Christ redeemer it is really tall what I mean by tall I mean really tall not taller than than the Indian one very tall which is called the guardian. Here's a picture of both of them.

    I’m having fun catching up with all of your blog posts. Taking a helicopter to explore the Milford Sounds would be truly amazing. Being able to see the very top of snow capped mountains and the expanse of water below, all at once, would be wonderful.

    I love the descriptive language that you have used for your ‘It’s all in the name’ blog post’. Fetid Lagoon is a great name for the Devil’s Bath. I love the use of the word ‘fetid’. Can you come up with two more names?

    It looks as though you have one last blog post to complete. I can’t wait to read it. Also, remember you can pick up bonus points by commenting on other peoples SLJ blog posts.

    Ngā mihi,
