The moa

The Moa
Sourced from: arbs
This task is about reading to find information and make inferences. Read the article below then answer the questions that follow.

Nobody today has seen a live moa – the bird is extinct.

The things we know about the moa come from accounts left by people who saw it in the past, and from the studies of scientists.File:Moa skeleton.JPG

Thousands and thousands of moas have lived and died here, but their bodies have all rotted away long ago. In order to find out how the moa looked and lived, scientists must study the things which are still left – mainly bones.

As well as the bones, people often find little heaps of stones which came from the bird's gizzard. The moa swallowed these stones to help grind up its food. And in very dry parts of New Zealand, people have even found skin and feathers, still stuck to dried-up moa bones.File:Hunting Moa - rotated.jpg

If you have been to a museum, you may have seen a model of a moa. The model has been built by using all this information as a guide.

Model-building is not very difficult to do. We have lots of moa bones. If you put a set of bones together to make a skeleton, you then have a shape of the bird.

There are places on the bones which show where the muscles should go. You can model the muscles from a plastic material and put them on to the skeleton. Then you put a skin over it.Other resolutions: 160 × 240

It is more difficult to find the right sort of feathers. Most models use emu feathers. The moa feathers which have been found look soft and droopy, like emu feathers. But they have more colour than those of the emu – they are golden-brown, with a purple streak down the middle.

Even so, these feathers may be faded. Some early Maori, who were asked about moas, said that they had bright, bright feathers. It may be that the moa was more brightly coloured than the models that you see in the museum.

(D)   Part of a moa.
(E)   Part of a bird's digestive system.

4. How is the basic shape of the moa worked out?

(B)   From making a model out of plastic material.
(C)   By reading accounts left by people who once saw it.
(D)   From examining dried skins and feathers.

(B)   Less colourful.
(C)   Harder and stiffer.
(D)   Faded and streaked.
(E)   Brighter.

6. Why has no living person ever seen a live moa?
  • Because no person was alive when they were born

7. Why would moa skin and feathers only be found in 'very dry' parts of New Zealand?
  • Because in the wet places they would have rotted away.

8. How do scientists know where the moa's muscles were attached to its skeleton?

  • There are places  the bones that show where the muscles should go.

The somalia


Once it was 6.15 in the morning and that morning…… some pirates were coming to our red,rusty,big,giant and best ship. They came because they thought we had heaps of cool things in our ship but...we didn’t have that cool stuff and then we hear...knock knock it was crooks coming up for our stuff.  We all put our hands up because we were so scared of them and then once a person came the person said “you know who I am I am the new boss now give me the hat and then keys…...give me the keys” then the old boss gave the things and then……..robots came out of the ship.

Then the boss was getting so scared because robots are so strong and then when the robots came out and then they went to go make the other pirates  cry so the new boss got scared  and then the new boss was trying to make the robots get away so we can win.

knock Knock on his back ahhhhh it was the biggest robot ever and the strongest one ever I was so scared cause of that and then…….I said “please don’t pick me up pleases and do slide me under the table please” and then….he did do that because I told him not to do it if I didn’t tell him that what of been cool.

“Yayyyy we are the winners” said the robots and then they said “now you know who you are, the boss now” to the old old boss and gave him the hat and then the key and then the new boss was like “ thank you thank you thank you robot” and then the robot said “it’s ok” and then all of them said “TEAM” yayyyyyy.
