Week 4 Day 4

Activity 1
There is a movie called Moana and there's this guy called Maui, he stole the heart from Te Fiti who is a goddess. Te Fiti was a mountain and once Maui took the heart from her, she became a lava monster and which made the islands go black and would kill the people who were on there.  Moana is a girl that saves the island and put the heart back into Te Fiti.
Moana was on a boat because she always wanted to go on a boat and sail out to sea but she failed and her mum and dad weren't happy.  Then one day Moana wanted to save the world and her mum and dad let her do it once.  She went out to sea, she went very far, she has a pet pig as well but it didn't come with her just the rooster. There is a very funny rooster that goes with Moana on the boat.   The rooster kept getting into the water because he was very silly.
Moana got in a storm and then she got washed up at an island that Maui was on.  Moana finds Maui on the island which he was stuck on for a million years.  Maui was stuck on the island because there was no hock and no boat to get him off the island.  Moana and Maui met.  Then they go on a big sailing adventure back to Te Fiti to return the heart. Which is a small green rock that Moana finds when she was little.

Activity 2
What do you think would be the most interesting and/or challenging things about being a farmer?
Doing all the work and doing it in the rain would be hard.  It would be interesting seeing baby animals growing up.

Would you like to be a farmer when you are older? Why/why not?
Yes I would like to be a farmer when I get older because my mum and dad are farmers and I like helping out on the farm. Second reason is having children and teaching them how to work on the farm.

Bonus Activity

My favorite song is Feel it still  written by Zachary Carothers, John Gourley and Kyle OQuin.  Sung by Portugal.  The Man.

The lyrics are:

Can't keep my hands to myself
Think I'll dust  'em off, put 'em back up on the shelf
In case my little baby girl is in need
Am I coming out of left field

Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
I been feeling it since 1966, now
Might be over now but I feel it still
Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
Let me kick it like it's 1986, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still

Got another mouth to feed
Leave her with a baby sitter, mama, call the grave digger
Gone with the fallen leaves
Am I coming out of left field?

Oo woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
I been feeling it since 1966, now
might've had your fill, but you feel it still
Ooh woo,  I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
I been feeling it since 1966, now
might be over now, but I feel it still

We could fight a war for peace
Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
Give in to that easy living
Goodbye to my hopes and dreams
Stop flipping for my enemies
We could wave until the walls come down
Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
It's time to give a little tip
Kids in the middle, move over 'til it falls
Don't bother me

Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming back?

Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, yeah
Your love is an abyss for my heart to eclipse, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still

Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
I've been feeling it since 1966,now
Might be over now, but I feel it still
Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
Let me kick it like it's 1986, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still 
Might've had your fill, but you feel it still

Bonus activity

In which country did it originate? Dominican Republic
Who originally created it? There are two popular versions of the dance. One story alleges the dance
originated with slaves who were chained together and, of necessity, were forced to drag one leg as
they cut sugar to the beat of drums.
The second story alleges that a great hero was wounded in the leg during one of the many
revolutions in the Dominican Republic. A party of villagers welcomed him home with a victory
celebration and, out of sympathy, everyone dancing felt obliged to limp and drag one foot.

Three facts:

  • It is a combination of two dances, the african and the french minuet, from the 1700’s - early 1800’s.
  • The black slaves saw the ballroom dances in the Big Houses and when they had their own festivities started mimicking the “masters’ dances”.
  • There was no blatant movement of the hips like there is today, as native African dances do not move the hips.

Out of the gate and off for a walk went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy, sneakily he went off to a garden and knocked over all the plants and the people that were there said “hairy Maclary shoo”.  Hairy Maclary out again sneakily got into a mailman’s car and got dropped off all the way to a school and the children went after Hairy Maclary.  The mailman didn’t know that Hairy Maclary was in the mail car.  Hairy Maclary jumped at the back of another car and had a ride and went off to a farm and the dogs that were there wanted to play. Hairy Maclary was spotted by one of the farmers and Hairy Maclary’s owner was there and pick him up and put him in her car and got home.  Hairy Maclary went off to see his dog friends and he found a bone and Hairy Maclary’s dog friends went after him when he was trying to escape from them and each place he would go one of them would get stuck.  Then finally all his dog friends weren’t behind, the last one was Schnitzel von Krumm with a very low tum. Schnitzel von Krumm couldn’t go over a wall but Hairy Maclary could. Straight back home to bed.
