Week 4 day 1

Week 4
Day 1: Turn of the Century (2000-2010)

Activity 1:  Celebrating a Win

In 2000, the country of New Zealand celebrated when Russell Coutts and
his sailing team won their second straight America’s Cup. This was the
first time that a team from New Zealand had won back-to-back
championships! Many people celebrated the victory with their friends and

On your blog, tell us what you and your family do to celebrate special
events, such as birthdays. Do you have a special meal or go to a specific
place? In our house, we usually make a pizza and bake a special cake.
What about you?

For our family on a special day like our birthday we would be able to pick
where we would want to go. Since I was five and my brother was six we
always went to Rainbows end for our birthdays. We went on the night
rides and the day rides with our whole entire family.
Last year I went with my friends. We get a cake made by a baker and we
would eat whatever the birthday person wants.

Activity 2: Lord of the Rings

Arguably one of the most famous movie trilogies of all time, The Lord
of the Rings, was filmed in New Zealand. All three movies were directed
by a New Zealander named Peter Jackson. The first movie was released
in 2001, the second in 2002 and the third in 2003. The movies cost an
estimated $300 million to produce!  
Imagine that instead of spending the money on the movies, Peter
Jackson decided to give all of this money to you. Lucky you! On your
blog, tell us what you would do with $300 million dollars. How would you
spend it? It is a lot of money so please think carefully about it and
spend it wisely :-)

With the $300 million dollars I would save $100 million and with the $200
million I would give it to my family, friends and homeless people who
don’t have anything so they can go spend it on themselves.
