WLJ Day 5 Activity 2!

Activity 2: After the adventure at The Lewis Pass Scenic Reserve, you are pretty happy to get back into the shuttle van and continue with your road trip. Over the next few hours you travel up and over the Southern Alps, arriving in the city of Christchurch to eat lunch. You have a delicious meal at a café downtown and then hop back into the van to travel to Twizel, a small town at the base of Aoraki-Mt Cook. Mt Cook is the largest mountain in New Zealand. It is also the mountain where Sir Edmund Hillary trained for his climb up Mt Everest the tallest mountain in the world. Sir Edmund Hillary is very famous because he was the first person to ever reach the top of Mt Everest! Now it is your turn to learn about a famous New Zealander. Use Google to research one famous person from New Zealand and then create a DLO and post it on your blog. Be sure to include: 1. The name of the famous person, 2. Where they were born, 3. Why they are famous, and 4. Two other interesting facts about them.


  1. Hi Hinerangi,

    What a great choice! I really like Lisa Carrington and I really admire her as an athlete and as a person. She has accomplished a huge amount in her career to date. I wonder if she will continue to compete over the next few years and, possibly, make another appearance in the 2020 Olympic Games. I hope so!

    Thanks for sharing this info with us about a wonderful kiwi athlete.
