Hands on Home Learning - wk 6

Use Google Maps to find out how far it is to your favourite holiday location.  ( real or pretend)

To go in the "ipad for a day" draw you need to:
  1. Send in an image proving that you used google maps to find your information.
  2. With the image provide  an explanation about how you would get to your location if you went in a car, walked or caught the bus. 
  3. Put you name in the draw by adding a comment to this blog telling us that you are in!:)
Go for it.  I can't wait to see how clever you are at using google maps and how exciting those places must be.  

Cooks Beach in the Coromandel was our family holiday location.  We drove via New Plymouth so it took us...
4 hours and 52 minutes to get to New Plymouth (that's without stops so you can imagine it took longer than that)
However not as long as if we had walked ( not carrying our camping gear)=2 days and 23 hours !!!!
Then we left the lovely New Plymouth and traveled to  to Cooks beach.   It took us 5 hours and 11 minutes

So in total 9 hours and 63 minutes!!! Driving that is.  Is that correct? What should it be?


  1. it is NOT right because 60 is an hour but you put 63 so the real total is 10 hours and 3 minutes.

    from mya

  2. it is not because you know that 60 is a hour and that is 10 hours and 3 minutes by Margaret

  3. I drove to Rotorua and we drove 452 km and it took 5 hours and 43 mins

  4. I forgot this ....

    and walking would take 3 DAYS and 21 HOURS!
    and on a bus it would take 7 hours and 58 mins

  5. have a look at my home work at

  6. In the holidays our family went to paraparaumu we saw eight ostriches!
