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.
Auckland Harbour Bridge (instead of bridge)
Sky Tower (instead of tower)
Rangitoto Island (instead of island)
