WK1 SLJ - Activity 3(D1): Waka ama

SLJ - Activity 3 (Bonus): Waka ama

To this day, the people of New Zealand still use waka. Instead of using their waka to transport them from one place to another, they sometimes use waka in special events and in sporting competitions such as Waka Ama. Both boys and girls compete in Waka Ama boat races. Watch this short video of a Waka Ama race. On your blog tell us whether you would like to be in a Waka Ama race one day. Why or why not?

I would love to be in a Waka ama race at least one day in my life.
It would be a great excersice and fun activity to do.
Maybe one day i'll compete in a Waka ama race for the thrilling expierence.

  1. Hi Davarni,

    That's a great reason to want to be in a Waka Ama race! I like how you have talked about how thrilling it would be. Races are always thrilling!

    What sort of skills do you think you would need to participate in a Waka Ama race? I think you would need to have great teamwork skills.

    Do you play any other sports? I don't play any sports but always enjoy watching my brother play soccer.

    Cheers,
    Ruby.

    1. Hi Ruby,

      I guess you need to be able to work with others well and have very strong arm stength.

      I used to play netball but I stopped for awhile, maybe next year i'll get back into it.

    2. Hi Davarni,

      Good thinking! You would definitely need good cooperation skills and very strong arms. I don't have very strong arms so I'm not sure I would want to be in a race.

      Cheers,
      Ruby.
