On a beautiful morning, tourists were making there way to see the Pink and White terraces. Then out of the fog came a omen waka ( boat ) with 8 warriors in it. Some Maori people thought it was a sign of bad luck.

9 days later, the ground began to shake and rumble, then suddenly BOOM!!!. Mount Tarawera erupted leaving behind it's mark which was a crack as long as 17 kilometres. The most terrible thing was that it destroyed the world-wide famous Pink and White Terraces. It was really important because it was one of the Great Wonders of the world.

The year 5 and 6 extension group have finished Their spectacular project. Over here you can see that this is my mini animation. It gives you a bit of information about the devastating disaster. So sit back and enjoy.

Hi Selena

I really liked you movie and the work you have done about Mt Tarawera. It is something that is close to my heart as I was born in that area and from my family home I can see mighty Tarawera in the distance. It is a magical sight, I only wish that the pink and white terraces had survived the eruption so we could see them today.
Thank you for sharing your learning will me.
keep up the fantastic work.
