2022 Kakapo Art

As part of Kakapo's topic they are researching NZ early explorers. They have been learning about Captain Cook and his long journey to New Zealand. The life and challenges the crew aboard the Endeavour faced.
A small part taken form Jacob Parker's Writing:
"200 years ago, 1768, James Cook and botanist John Banks set sail on a mission to claim Southern countries. There were 94 people aboard the Endeavour. The food wasn't so great. They would have porridge, soup with meat and even a biscuit called Hard Tuck. On HMS Endeavour was a cat. There was also another type of cat that kept the crew in order. The terrible Catt of 9 Tails. If they disobeyed an order they would get 12 lashes on their bare backs." Lana Ferencz
