Our big study for term two was New Zealand and Waikato Icon's. Students had to research an Icon and present a piece of work related to it in a form that could be displayed on our class page.
Highlights of this from term two included Cullen's group making Pavlova you can view a video here or view a photostory. Kieran's icon of choice was the Hamilton Balloon Festival, and his activity was to make a Hot Air Balloon and bring it into class to launch it, you can view footage of the Balloon launch (which was successful!) here. We also viewed footage from 2007 of Hot Air Balloon launches that were less than successful!
