3 facts about New Zealand

1. New Zealand is the land of Maori's (kiwi's) and so did you know that there is about 4.4+ million people that are New Zealanders. 69% are European, 14.6% are native, 9.2% are Asian and 6.9% non Maori pacific.

2. Over 400 years ago Maori's voyaged (sailed) thousands of miles across the vast unknown pacific ocean. Also to this day or even very moment, the Maori cultures now part of New Zealand's national (world wide) identity.

3. The longest place name in the world is Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu, a hill in Hawkes Bay.

  1. Kia ora Danielle and welcome to the Winter Learning Journey programme. We are so excited to see that you have joined us this year!!

    After reading your post I can honestly say that you have taught me something brand new this year! In fact, I had no idea that the longest place name in the world is from our country - Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu. Do you happen to know what it means? I'm so curious...

    Thanks for sharing this interesting fact with us! I can't wait to see what else you have learned and shared with us on your other blog posts. I'm off to read them now!

    Nice work,

    Rachel :)
