Day 5: Coming to an End

Day 5: Coming to an End

Activity 1: VE Day!

After six long years of fighting, World War II finally came to an end in 1945.
The entire country was ecstatic and parties were thrown all over New Zealand
to celebrate VE Day (Victory in Europe). Imagine that you were living in New
Zealand in 1945 and you had to plan a VE day party at your house.
Who would you invite? What would you do to celebrate?

On your blog, tell us all about your (imaginary) VE party. If it was me,
I would invite all of my closest friends and family over to my house for a big barbecue.
We would eat hamburgers and play basketball in the driveway.
Some of us would probably walk to the local beach to play soccer on the beach
and to go for a swim (if the weather was warm enough)!

If  i had a VE party i would invite my closest friend and my family and my best friend and we would be 
eating pizza marshmallow in my backyard fire  and burgers and we would be playing rugby with my 
family and water fight and balloon fight and going to the beach.

Activity 2: Making a Fashion Statement

In the years following World War II, things slowly returned to normal in
New Zealand. Soldiers returned home and settled back into regular life;
and national sporting teams, like the New Zealand cricket team, got back
together and started playing matches again. In the late 1940s, men and
women would go to watch these events, men wearing hats and suits and
women wearing dresses, hats, and gloves.
Compare the pictures of common clothing from the late 1940s to what you wear now
(i.e. in 2017). Are they similar or are they quite different?

On your blog tell us which of the two styles you prefer and why. The pictures above were taken over 65 years ago! What do you think people will be wearing
65 years from now?

I choose the first one because it much fashion to wear around people not like dirty ones  and 
i prefer style not rip clothes and in 65 year what would people be wearing
now they will be wearing normal clothes

Bonus Activity: Sweet Tooth

When World War II ended, a number of people from Europe moved to
New Zealand looking for a peaceful place to live and raise a family. When they came,
they brought recipes and foods from their native countries with them, including
hamburgers, pizza and other delicious foods.

  1. Hey there Maria, thanks for sharing your plans for a party celebrating the victory of the second world war in Europe. It's great to see you are working hard during your summer break. Happy new year!

    I think you have an awesome party planned. I love hamburgers! What kind of pizza would you buy or make?
