Day 4 - Activity 2

Activity 2: After a morning of learning about beached whales in Golden Bay, you and your group are driven to a nearby town, Nelson, to watch a special movie calledWhale rider.’ It is a famous movie about a young girl who was born and raised in New Zealand. Watch the following movie trailers for Whale Rider: Whale Rider trailer #1 and Whale Rider Trailer #2 and then write a summary of the movie on your blog. What is it about? Be sure to also give the movie a rating out of 5 based on the trailer [1 = bad movie, 2 = okay movie, 3 = pretty good, 4 = good movie, 5 = excellent movie].
When ‘Whale Rider’ finishes, you and your tour group enjoy a delicious meal in downtown Nelson before heading back to your hotel. You need to go to bed early because you have to get up at 4:30 a.m. the next morning to travel back to Farewell Spit to see a group (pod) of Hector’s Dolphins. It is going to be an early morning!

C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Whale Rider movie poster.jpgI have watched this trailer and thought this was a emotional and great movie it was a traditional and cultural movie that I enjoyed watching. In this movie I could see that when her brother was born and was suppose to be the next chief but unfortunately the baby died. I have rated this movie a 2 because I thought this movie wasn't my type and it was okay.


  1. Hey Freeman
    I agree with you. The movie looked alright but it definitely isn't the type I like to watch. Keep up all of the amazing work you have done so far.

  2. Kia Ora Freeman
    The trailer of the movie was awesome. I decided to watch the full movie. I gave it a 5 out of 5. What part did you like about the trailer of the movie (Whale Rider). Keep up the awesome work!

  3. Hi Freeman. I also gave it a two out of five, because it's not a movie I would watch. My question is, have you watched the whole movie? Keep up the great work.

  4. Hi Freeman!

    This is nice summary. It is a very emotional movie with a great message of courage and determination! I like that you told us why you rated it a 2 out of 5 - it's not everyone's choice in movie!

  5. Hello Freeman, I like how you have said why you gave rated the trailer a two out of five. I gave the trailer a four out of five because I was curious to see what happens in the movie. Amazing work.
