On Thursday the 4th of April Lagmhor Senior and room 14 went to the Art Museum. We walked from school. We went there because our inquiry topic is Where We are in Time and Place.. When we got there a lady named Keeley took us. She had cards with pictures of food that Māori used to eat and what was brought into New Zealand by Europeans. We had to sort them out into different piles. After that we also had a turn with the Maori drill. She showed us how to use it. It had string to pull and a rock to drill holes. It had a hard long stick so the string could wrap around it and you could pull the string to make the drill move. it also had a thing like a wheel on the stick.. Ater that we had tools that we had to figure out. There was a scraper, chisel, fishing weight and a hammer. We had a scavenger –hunt around the museum. We had to find certain things like a tricycle, cups. When we finished the scavenger- hunt, we could do a quiz. We had groups up to 5 and when our groups were called we went back to Keeley and we got to see how Maori made fire. We also got to have a go. We got to make butter and see how they made grain into flour. We had fun and my favourite bit was the scavenger- hunt. Penny
