Mrs A Newbold This is very cute. You have learnt alot about this wonderful bird. Well done.
Lauren Well done. That was so good. Possums are good animals in Australia but the kiwi is special in NZ.
kathy t well done great research, i didn't know about the problem with possums in new zealand so i have learnt something from your work.
Ms Fryer TL Horsnby NSW The images suited each message and the music made me feel like I was on a journey with the kiwi. Enjoyable and education! Well done.
Impact Video clippings are good. "Kiwi Alert" is so nice and the sound effect is matchable. Sound effect is a vital part of video clippings.
domies boy abhichal i liked that nic work
ianmclean I liked the way you were able to add a humorous line to fit the unexpected image of possum road kill. It gives your persuasive slideshow extra personality. So does the bouncy music. Great teamwork!

s3penrithps Help the kiwi survive!
s3penrithps The kiwi is a ground dwelling bird native to New Zealand.
s3penrithps Did you know that kiwis have feathers that look brown and fluffy?
s3penrithps The kiwis' tiny wings are useless so the birds live on the forest floor.
s3penrithps Kiwis can run, but cannot fly. So...
s3penrithps the lovable kiwis are threatened by predators like feral dogs...
s3penrithps and feral cats - and possums (brought to New Zealand from Australia).
s3penrithps Protected in Australia, possum fur is popular in New Zealand.
s3penrithps Kiwis would say, "The only good possum is a dead possum."
s3penrithps "Send the possums back!"
s3penrithps "But always watch out for kiwis. Help us survive."
