Holiday reading challenge day 1 activity 1

For this activity I had to find facts about New Zealand and blog about the most interesting three.

1. Today of the 4.4 million people in New Zealand 69 percent are of European decent, 14.6 are Maori, 9.2 are are Asian and 6.9 are pacific islanders.
2. Geographically over three quarters of the people in New Zealand live in the north island.
3. Rugby is the most popular spectating sport in New Zealand.


  1. Kia ora Alex and welcome back to the holiday blogging programme. It is so great to have you back blogging with us!! I see that both you and Daniel have been really active over the past day. Did you know that you have posted one more blog than Daniel so far? Keep up the great work - you guys are setting such an awesome example for everyone else to follow!

    I will really enjoy reading through all of your activity posts. I can see from this first post that you have done some great research. I didn't know that over three quarters of New Zealanders live in North Island until reading the Winter Learning Journey blog posts. Did you know that before you did your research? It's great to have the chance to learn new things and be able to share them online, isn't it?!

    I hope that you will continue to share your great learning and your creativity with us over the next two weeks. You're really giving Daniel a run for his money this holiday...

    Awesome work.
