Rotorua Museum

On Friday we went to visit Rotorua Museum to learn about geothermal activity and how it is used in our town.

What did you learn at the museum? What did you enjoy?

  13. I enjoyed learning about geothermal and seeing how the earth is split into half. And enjoyed having mud on my face. I learnt that they used to have lots of geothermal but some thing got wrong and the government took it away. Geothermal is the heat from the earth.

    I enjoyed the part when we went to the movie of mount tarawera and the seats were shaking and they were making a loud noise. I also enjoyed the part when we put mud on our faces. I and kaydence were a little bit scared when the seats in the movie were shaking. Me, Kaydence and Lilly were sitting on the same seat in the movie and lilly was a little bit scared. We had so much fun there.

  22. How amazing is it for us to live in a place where we go past boiling mud and a roaring geyser on our way to school? Not many children around the world can say that!
