Activity 2 - Day 2

Activity 2 - Rio de Janeiro, the host of Olympic Games this year, is a huge, vibrant and dynamic city. Perhaps the most famous landmark in the city is a large statue of Jesus called ‘Christ the Redeemer’ that sits on top of a hill overlooking Rio. Here is a picture of the statue:
New Zealand is also known for many famous landmarks, including the SkyTower and the Harbour Bridge. In your blog list 3 famous landmarks in New Zealand. Along with the name of each landmark provide a brief description of it. Where is the landmark located? In your opinion, why is it famous?

First landmark is the Beehive. This landmark is used for the Prime Minister to do his meetings. This Landmark was built 39 years ago which is 1977. This Landmark is located in Wellington, New Zealand. In my opinion I think this is famous because Wellington is the capital of New Zealand.

Second landmark is the Auckland Zoo. The Auckland Zoo is used for animals to keep in and to get looked after. There are different types of animals like mammals, reptiles and more. This landmark is located in Auckland, New Zealand. I think this is a famous landmark because there are different types of animals.

Last Landmark is Sky City. Sky City is used for special occasions, Gabbling and many more. Also the sky city is the tallest building in New Zealand it is 328 m tall. This is located in Auckland, New Zealand. This is famous because the Sky City is the tallest.

  1. Good morning Caroline! I think that you have chosen a number of really interesting landmarks for this activity. I personally love going to the Auckland zoo. My son, Aronui, and I used to go quite often when he was little because he loved to see the tigers and the elephants. If you were going to the zoo, which animals would you most want to see?

    Speaking of animals (and insects!) I also love that you chose the Beehive as one of your three famous landmarks. It is a very important building for New Zealanders. Have you ever been to visit?

    Cheers, Rachel :)
