Austrailia & New Zealand

This week in History we learned about the people of the land down under, Australia and New Zealand. We read a story about a little boy who ate moths and bats for snacks! Fruit snacks have a whole new appeal now. So we made "Moth Mix", I have put the recipe below.

Moth Mix-(from History of the World)
1 bag microwave popcorn, popped
1/2 c. peanuts (the moths)
2 T. Honey
Pop the popcorn, then mix in the peanuts and honey.
Stir and enjoy a sticky treat.

We also learned about the Maori people who discovered New Zealand. It is thought that they came from the Polynesian Islands. So we painted the kids like a Maori warrior. We were suppose to paint their faces, but the kids were not up for that, so we opted for the arms.
