Comparing My House to a Wharepuni

The things that aren't the same:

  1.  The roof is made of stick and straw. 
  2.  the doorway does not have a door and the doorway is smaller, way smaller than ours.
  3. The window does not have any glass
  4. It does not look comfortable

The things that are the same:

  1.  Both have beds,  
  2.  both rectangular houses,

  1. Hi Abby,

    My name's Ruby and I'm one of the people who will be blogging with you over the summer for the Summer Learning Journey.

    Wow! You have done such a good job coming up with differences! And you have some good similarities too. I wonder what it would be like to live in a house where the roof is made from sticks and straw. Do you think you would like to live under a stick and straw roof?

    When a roof is made from sticks and straws we call it a thatched roof. Can you find a picture of what a thatched roof might look like on a wharepuni?

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.
    Ruby :)
