Winter Learning Journey: Day 4 - Activity 2

Activity 2: After a morning of learning about beached whales in Golden Bay, you and your group are driven to a nearby town, Nelson, to watch a special movie calledWhale rider.’ It is a famous movie about a young girl who was born and raised in New Zealand. Watch the following movie trailers for Whale Rider: Whale Rider trailer #1 and Whale Rider Trailer #2 and then write a summary of the movie on your blog. What is it about? Be sure to also give the movie a rating out of 5 based on the trailer [1 = bad movie, 2 = okay movie, 3 = pretty good, 4 = good movie, 5 = excellent movie].

The movie is about a girl and her twin brother. The twin brother was meant to be the new chief of the tribe but unfortunately he dies when he's born. There is a rule that only male's are able to become chief but the twin brother died so the girl becomes the chief. I think I would rate it the movie 2 out of 5 because it is not a movie the I would want to watch.


  1. Hey Fraidoon
    I decided to rate the movie (Whale rider) a three out of five because (Like you) it's not a movie I would like or want to watch. Keep up the amazing work Fraidoon!

  2. Kia Ora Fraidoon
    I decided to rate the movie a 5 out of 5 because it's a movie I would watch. I choose to watch the full movie. Great summary on what the trailer s about. Keep up the amazing work!

  3. Hi Fraidoon. I also gave it a two out of five for the exact same reason as you. It's not a movie I would watch. Keep up the great work.

  4. Hey Fraidoon!

    This is a nice summary of the movie. I think Paikea has some great courage and determination to get where she wants to be as the chief! Maybe you could watch the full movie if you get a chance to see what happens...


  5. Hey Fraidoon
    I think you did a very good summary of your movie! Good job
