We made kowhai trees with play dough. We talked about their colours, named all parts - such as leaves, trunk, flowers, branches - Ms Michelle, our student teacher helped us with our work.
We made a kauri tree too. We have learned that kauri tree is the biggest tree in the forest. We saw a kauri tree at Arataki Forest. It was big and old. We think it was 600 years old.
We used pipe cleaners to make our own native plants. We were able to make a nikau tree because it was easy. It was fun making native trees with things like pipe cleaners because we have to be really creative.
Look at my kauri tree!
This is my kowhai tree. It has yellow flowers and green leaves.
