The Moa

The Moa. There were nine species of Moa.The flightless birds were usually found around New Zealand bush. The two largest species were the Dinornis robustus and the Dinornis  novaelandiae. They reached about 3.6 meters (12ft) in height but with there neck outstretched and they weighed about 230kg. When Polynesians settled New Zealand in CE 1280 the population of the Moa was around 58,000

They were safe for thousands of years until the arrival of the Maori. They were only hunted by Haast's eagle. The Moa extinction occurred in CE 1440, primarily due to overhunting by the Maori. Scientist still this year are still trying to bring the extinct flightless bird back from its death and bring it back to life.

Today in room 2 we had Mrs Hurly and we made some Soda Bread and some normal White Bread.

Top- the white bread before it was baked

This was the steps to making the White Bread!

Step 1. We put in 3 3/4 Tablespoons of milk powder into the bowl

Step 2. We put in 4 1/2 Teaspoons of yeast into to the bowl

Step 3. We put in 3 3/4 tablespoons of sugar into the bowl

Step 4. We put in 3 3/4 of a teaspoon of oil into the bowl

Bottom- after the white bread was baked

Step 5. pour in 555mls of warm water and mix it in

Step 6. We added in 6 3/4 of a cup of flour and stirred it all in together

After we had poured in the flour we kneaded the bread by pushing your palm forward and pulling it back. It was soft and stretchy and we had no problems. It was very easy to make. we knew it was ready when it was soft and moist. After we had kneaded enough Mrs Hurly put glad wrap over top and put in a warm spot to rise.
