Day 4 - Activity 2: Winter Learning Journey

Activity 2: After a morning of learning about beached whales in Golden Bay, you and your group are driven to a nearby town, Nelson, to watch a special movie calledWhale rider.’ It is a famous movie about a young girl who was born and raised in New Zealand. Watch the following movie trailers for Whale Rider: Whale Rider trailer #1 and Whale Rider Trailer #2 and then write a summary of the movie on your blog. What is it about? Be sure to also give the movie a rating out of 5 based on the trailer [1 = bad movie, 2 = okay movie, 3 = pretty good, 4 = good movie, 5 = excellent movie].

When ‘Whale Rider’ finishes, you and your tour group enjoy a delicious meal in downtown Nelson before heading back to your hotel. You need to go to bed early because you have to get up at 4:30 a.m. the next morning to travel back to Farewell Spit to see a group (pod) of Hector’s Dolphins. It is going to be an early morning!

To be very honest with myself I would rate this movie a 5 because it really got my attention, not only that the movie had a very inspiring message for everyone to understand which was to Never give up and also do what best .

The movie Whale Rider is a very interesting fabulous movie about a very little girl that had learnt about her generations and not only that her grandfather was a leader and he teached them so many things.
In every generation and every first born is a new chief of the tribe but the thing that made it different was the little girl was not treated like one because it was only meant for Males.

  1. Talofa Henrietta,

    Thank you for sharing your summary about the Whale rider trailer. I am so pleased to see that you were able point out a message you received from the movie. I'm so proud to see that you could understand the movie in your own way. The movie is very moving, capturing beautiful scenes of New Zealand. I loved watching this movie because I had so much emotional thoughts and feelings for Paikea. She was so strong proving herself to strive for what she wanted and I believe that's such a good example to motivate learners like you to keep pushing through your learning.

    You are doing so well Henrietta!
