Winter learning journey: Day 2 Activity 2

Task: As an island nation, New Zealand is completely surrounded by water. It is the perfect place for people who like to swim or to sail! While in Dargaville, recovering from your busy day of sightseeing, you notice a number sailboats going by. One of the boats is manned by a young German girl named Laura Dekker. At the age of fourteen she sailed around the world the entire world by herself. You can watch a short video clip about her adventures here: Laura Dekker sailing trip.   

Let’s imagine that you had the chance to interview Laura while in Dargaville. On your blog post five questions that you would ask her.
Question one: Who encouraged you to become a Sailor?
Question two: If you had to give an advice to someone who wants to be like you, what advice would you give to them?
Question three: Why did you pick to become a Sailor?
Question four: Did you struggle on becoming a Sailor?
Question five: How old were you when you started you career?


  1. Hi Francesca,

    You have thought of some really great questions to ask Laura. I think you would learn heaps in your interview with her, well done!

  2. Ola Francesca,

    Great work generating your own questions for Laura. I love the way you considered asking questions about her sailing experience. I can't wait to see her response if we get the chance to meet her. Well done!

    Enjoy the rest of your Journey through New Zealand!

    Best wishes,
