Killer whales/Orca whales

Killer Whales also referred to as Orca Whales. These sea creatures are in the O. orca species and are seen all around the world even in Antarctica and Greenland. Killer Whales are mostly black with white patches in different places on the body.

Killer Whales hunt in groups like wolf packs. But when the mother has calves she teaches them how to hunt pray like Seals,Sea lions,other whales,birds and Penguins.

Killer Whales also migrate just like other whales. Luckily Orcas are far from extinction.

Te Tuhi

Today we went on a trip to Te Tuhi in Pakuranga we went there because it is our term 4 inquiry for art attack.

We also made one of our own Tapa using Dye, Paper and Oil pastel. The four main things that we had to include were Family, Culture, Interests and Home.

Once we were Finished we had a look around the Gallery and learnt about water and dams. And it was great.
