Winter learning journey:Day 3 Activity:1

Task:Curious Kiwi, a native New Zealand bird, is your tour guide for today. He is going to take you to visit the Otorohanga Kiwi House and Native Bird Park where many of his aunties and uncles currently live. The bird park is a five hour drive from Dargaville so you hit the road right after breakfast and arrive in Otorohanga at lunch time. As you walk through the birdhouse you learn about the work being done to conserve and protect the native birds of New Zealand. Let’s imagine that you decide to help out by ‘adopting’ a native animal. Visit the Adopt a Critter page on the Otorohanga bird house website to choose one animal to ‘adopt.’ On your blog, tell us the name of the animal that you chose and a little bit about them. What kind of animal are they? What do they eat? Where do they normally live? You can use Google to help you with your research.

Animal I’m going to Adopt: Tuatara
Facts about the animal:
I have chosen to adopt a Tuatara because it is one of New Zealand’s most common native animal. The Tuatara is  known to be the longest reptile that lives in comparison to the remaining reptiles that lives in New Zealand. Most reptiles live on land.

  1. Hi Francesca, it is great that you picked the Tuatara to adopt, what would you name it? Can you see if you could find out a little more about your Tuatara? You could look at what they eat or where they live.

  2. Hola Francesca,

    I agree with Miss Stone, What would you call this tuatara and could you tell explain more about it?

    Keep up the great work!
