The topic I have chosen is sailing. Back in the day when maori were alive they did not have big giant boats and cruises like we have now they had waka.
Waka is a boat carved from either tree or wood.
Maori people would call the small boat waka but pakea would call it canoe.
Well boats and cruises are so giant that they can hold millions of people. If you wanted to go on one of the boats it would be super expensive.
The materials the boats would need would be heavy metal, carbon fibre and many more heavy materials.
Well back in the day they had to use their hands to make things but now in our days we use factories. Back in the day they would take around one month to make their own waka but if we make one it would be ready in one day.
