The middle school groups have been learning about Auckland landmarks. ¬†We looked on google maps and used the dictionary to find the meaning of the word ‘landmarks’.

We came up with a group definition:

Landmarks are special buildings or big objects that are easy to see from a distance such as the Sky Tower.

We looked at proper nouns.

Proper nouns name a person, a place, an animal or a thing.

They always start with a capital letter.

For example:

Auckland Harbour Bridge (instead of bridge)

Sky Tower (instead of tower)

Rangitoto Island (instead of island)
