eTime Virtual School- Week 4: Whalers & Sealers
Nationwide, 'Star Chasers, Sea Farers & Gold Diggers ~ Tales of Early NZ Settlers': Term 2
This week we look at the first European groups to live in New Zealand: the sealers and whalers. We look at where they came from, why they came, how they impacted New Zealand's marine life, and the hard life that they found here. This week's challenge is to write a sea shanty from the perspective of an early whaler or sealer in New Zealand, drawing on the traditional features of sea shanty lyrical structure. In an untraditional twist, we turn the tables to also hear verses from the perspective of a seal or whale at the time.
