Okahau CapsuleWe looked at the capsule on the blog and we could see writing on it. When we zoomed in on the computer we saw the words Okahau Capsule.
We looked on Google to see what Okahau meant. It means Warrington.
We know that we taught some kids how to do blogging in Warrington but that's about it.
Mrs T-J had the capsule in her bag. We had a look...
What does this tell us about Okahau?
The people down there are interested in beach stuff like crabs and shells. They are beach people, they might like to surf, they like collecting stuff. They love being around the water, they like nature. They love being surrounded by water. They like adventures. They like nature. They find out new things.
The Crabs taught us that they have crabs at their beach - we think that they might like to eat kai moana.
The seaweed smelled yucky and it smelled different from Auckland. It looked like sea food. We think Warrington must smell salty and beachy.
We saw mini shells. They were really cool and they reminded us of the beach. They must have little small sea snails. We wonder if they have pipi. They had curling colourful patterns. We have shells like that at our houses.
In our cultures we make beautiful jewelery out of shells - Do you?
We looked at big shells too. This tells us that they have different sized shells down there...
I think that this is dried seaweed. I know that seaweed is in the ocean and that some animals eat it. It tells me that this person likes seaweed. It makes me think about the deep ocean...
These tell me that this person loves the ocean. I know that these are everywhere on the beach. It makes me think about sand.
