One frozen and chilly morning, rooms 7 and 8 went on a rocky shore vacation at Long Bay Reserve. After an hour drive we reached our destination. When we arrived we got of the bus and lined up in our groups that we were put in.
Once we were lined up a women came to speak to us about our presentation for the day. In addition we walked over to the point, where we were going to be working for the day to have a little korero with all of the instructors as well as introducing ourselves. Finally we accomplished having a korero with the instructors they decided which groups they would take and teach.
Afterwards we went for a review at the rock pools to discover different types of species from the seashore.
When I was discovering the species I found out that
- Starfish and Kinas belong to the family Echinoderm
- Crayfish and Lobsters belong to the family Nephropidae
- Cockles and Pipis belong to the family Cardidaes.
Once we finished discovering different species we had a snack. Then we did our last activity which was picking up unique objects. While looking for things we had to define them on the way back to the shelter.
It was a good experience for me and I enjoyed it.
