Cool Kiwi Fact #2: The longest place name in the world can be found here in New Zealand. ‘Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu’ is the name of a hill that be found in the Hawke’s Bay region of New Zealand.

Day 1: The Early Years (Late 1800s – 1919)

Activity 1:

Name: Notre-Dame de Paris 
6 Parvis Notre-Dame - Pl. Jean-Paul II, 75004 Paris, France
200 years

Activity 2:

It is not fair that woman in Saudi Arabai didn't get to vote until 2015 because then they won't be more vote for who ever got to count.

Activity 3:

I didn't really like the poem it made me feel sad for the dead.


  1. Hi Yo. I hope you had a very merry Christmas with your family. Wow! 200 years to build Notre Dame de Paris! I totally agree with you about women not being allowed to vote. So unfair! It was very sad when the soldiers died but we should be proud of them for sacrificing their lives to save our country. Great job!

  2. Hi Yuktha,

    Ruby here from the Summer Learning Journey team!

    Activity 1: Cool choice of cathedral! I got the chance to see it when I went to France a few years ago and it was just amazing! There are gargoyles all over it and such an incredible amount of detailed work, I'm not surprised it took them 200 years to build it. Could you include a picture so we can see what it looks like?

    Activity 2: I don't think it's fair either. Women should have the same right to voting as men have because they have opinions about these things as well. There are many reasons why women should be able to vote I think. How does it make you feel that New Zealand was the first country that allowed women to vote?

    Bonus Activity: The poem made me feel sad too. But I loved it! It has so much emotion and power. I feel honoured that those men were willing to die so that we could have safety in the future. Also, when reading this poem, I feel I must remember those who died because they worked so hard for us.
    Why don't you like it? I know it's sad, but it's also beautiful!
