Waka ama

For activity three the Bonus Round, we had to watch a video about waka ama, where they had races in a waka against different people and we had to write if we would go in a waka ama race or not. Here is what I think and here is a link to the video!

I would be in a waka ama race, because I would get stronger and have fun participating with friends. You might be able to win in a race and get a trophy. I would go in a waka ama race for fun and to do something that can make my arms stronger to get faster. I would join in  and try and try to get my waka to go faster and faster to win. I would feel joyful that I won in the waka ama race.
