Kakepuku trip

As part of getting to know our class, team, school and local area, we will be visiting our mountain group maunga - Kakepuku.
I have a sneaky feeling something dramatic may happen while we're there, so we need to be prepared.
I suggest we research the mountain, the native flora and fauna, survival skills and see if we can be prepared for any possible disaster that may occur while we are there. I'm sure we'll be safe, but what if we're not....

some of these sites may be useful to read up on survival skills - please evaluate them and take notes on useful ideas. make your notes in your homework book. write down which sites you take notes from. do not copy all the info - just write out the bits that are useful in your own words. the sites may not all be useful.... this is the important thing to remember about the internet.

Are these sites designed for people in the NZ environment? If not, is the info still useful to us?

Enjoy your searching and be responsible about taking notes and not plagiarising.
