Winter Learning Journey: Day 5 - Activity 1

Activity 1: After a few hours in the car, you, your group and Curious Kiwi arrive at your first stop – The Lewis Pass Scenic Reserve. It is a beautiful, regional park located at the base of the Southern Alps. You and your group get out of the van and follow Curious Kiwi. He is going to lead you on a short walk through the park. As you start walking, you notice a really cool looking tree on the side of the trail and you stop to take a closer look. When you turn back, the group (and Curious Kiwi) is nowhere to be found. Eek! You are all alone in the middle of a strange forest.

For this activity write a short story (8-10 sentences) about what might happen next. Please be sure to include lots of details about what you might be feeling, seeing and doing after you realise that you are all alone in the forest...

It was a very nice day, my scout group and I were walking through the forest. I saw a Kea and went to check it out and then suddenly there was no one around me. I was LOST. I screamed for help but no one answered. I went looking around, my throat was dry and I needed water. But the heat was making it harder for me. Then instantly I faint and knock my head against a tree. I was out for hours then I hear someone say my name. First I thought I was hearing things but it got closer and closer. Then I saw my father. I was so happy to see him.


  1. Hello Fraidoon
    Your story is amazing! I like how you saw a Kea on your forest journey. Just remember to double check your sentences to make sure they make sense :). Keep up the superb work Fraidoon!

  2. Hi Fraidoon!

    This is such great story! I felt like I was the person being lost in the forest while reading it! The language you used paints a picture in the readers head, which always makes for a good story!

    You're doing such a great job, I have loved reading your blog!

    Nicky :)
