Have you ever heard of Easter Island? It is an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It is also known as Rapa Nui. It was named Easter Island by Dutch explorers who landed there on Easter Sunday in 1722. When they arrived, they discovered over 800 giant statues and almost no people. This was strange, since the small number of people on the island couldn’t possibly have built these statues – it would have taken a much larger civilization. If you would like to see the giant statues and find out more about the island, here are some links below. Maybe you would like to write a Report about it or maybe you would like to give some suggestions about what you think might have happened to all the people who lived there. Or maybe you would like to do an Art project – you could draw or paint pictures of the giant statues or you could try making them from cereal boxes.
Don’t forget – please make sure you are supervised by an adult when you are using the internet. Wishing you all a very Happy Easter Holiday. Be kind to each other and don’t forget to help the adults in your house.
