Day 5 Activity 1

Activity 1: After a few hours in the car, you, your group and Curious Kiwi arrive at your first stop – The Lewis Pass Scenic Reserve. It is a beautiful, regional park located at the base of the Southern Alps. You and your group get out of the van and follow Curious Kiwi. He is going to lead you on a short walk through the park. As you start walking, you notice a really cool looking tree on the side of the trail and you stop to take a closer look. When you turn back, the group (and Curious Kiwi) is nowhere to be found. Eek! You are all alone in the middle of a strange forest.
For this activity write a short story (8-10 sentences) about what might happen next. Please be sure to include lots of details about what you might be feeling, seeing and doing after you realise that you are all alone in the forest...
I reached closer to the tree when I turned around I was alone! Nothing to see all there was were trees.”I need to find my friends”.

So I walked along the track when I took a turn.Splash!I was so wet I have fallen in the Lewis river.I climbed out of the river and started to walk along the track.

I tried to climb a tree but it was to tall I thought I would have fallen off.I tried to follow the way I Came from when I was with Curious Kiwi.I had no hope I thought I was going to be stuck here forever.Then I found Curious Kiwi.Hooray!That Day I decided to never give up.


  1. Hi Ana,

    Hooray! I am so glad that you didn't give up and that you managed to find Curious Kiwi after all. That is such good news! I must admit that I'm very relieved to have never been lost in the forest. Have you ever had a moment when you became separated from your family or friends and had to find your way back to them?

    I was actually just reading in the New Zealand Herald newspaper about a women here in NZ who became separated from her group and got lost in the Mt Ruapehu area. It is a place in the middle of the North Island that has recently experienced a huge dumping of snow. Therefore, she was lost overnight in the snowy bush and only found this morning. It must have been so scary (and cold), don't you think?

    Keep up the great work with you blogging, Ana! You've got tons of time left this holiday to post more of your awesome blogs...
