Earlier this term, the Pihanga literacy group were set on a task to see the similarities and differences between two books that we had recently read. The first book was based on how people explored the world through voyage on a canoe, with a person as navigator. The second book was based on a boy who sets out on a journey with the transport on ships that have easier navigation. In between the circles represent the similar activities to the two books. On the blue and red circles, it represents the differences.
