3 What further knowledge about New Zealand would you like to get?

4 : There is a place on our earth where hot water and steam come from under the ground. It is a large island in the Pacific Ocean. The island is North Island, in New Zealand. The planet on which we live is a ball of very hot rock. It is a good thing for us that the outside shell is cold. The earths shell has cracks( ) in it some places. In New Zealand this shell seems to have more cracks than in other places on the earth. In some places, hot water shoots (goes up ) into the air from time to time. At other points, you can see steam coming from pools of hot water. The people who live in these places make use of the heat that comes from inside the earth. Some of them cook in the hot pools. They put food into a basket and place it in the water. Many people bring the hot water from below the earth into their homes. They do this by putting a pipe a hundred feet or more into the ground. In this way they get hot water and steam for cooking and washing, and heating their homes. For most of us, the heat under our feet is too far away to use. We must make our heat by burning coal, oil or gas.

Today the approximately 500,000 Maori are mainly living in the cities, but they remain closely connected to their tribes. Their tribal groupings are derived from the people of each canoe, settling in New Zealand in the early times.
