Where The Heck Is ?

Different Auckland town centres have adopted Rugby teams from countries that qualified for the World Cup.
I found out information about : Mangere Bridge
The location in Auckland; In Mangere
Something special about this place;
A 'potted' history of the place; Mangere Bridge is very important to the community.
If it has it's own symbol of some sort.
we chose a picture that told more about the place

“Where The Heck Is Mangere Bridge?”

Two minutes drive from the airport hotels and motels takes you to our very own typical New Zealand. it is located in the south side.

Mangere Bridge Village is renowned as a friendly, yet “real” taste of Kiwiana, and is a great way to acclimatize to New Zealand culture. The area is steeped in history and has a rich cultural heritage stemming from Maori settlement in the early 1800’s through to a vibrant Chinese market gardening community and European settlement.

Keep Your Eye On The Ball

We are using the nations of the 2011 Rugby World Cup as our inquiry path.

For this unit we are in one of four teams: Brumbies, Force, Rebels, Stormers. My team is Brumbies will be a number of tasks for us to navigate to achieve our goal of an excellent result in this unit. There are a mixture of individual and team tasks to be completed. The main task that will show our learning in this unit will be a Hyperstudio presentation about one of the countries in the World Cup competition.

I'm really excited about the world cup and how much it would bring people from around the world together.
