Matariki – Traditional Māori Kites

Matariki – Traditional Māori Kites

A scavenger hunt and activity sheets for learning about Māori kites (manu tukutuku) from long ago. All of the information used in this resource was sourced from books and the internet. The Scavenger Hunt: Place the cards around the room. Your students walk around with a question sheet and they read the information on the cards to answer the questions. The cards have numbers that correspond to the question numbers. ♦ 22 information cards (2 per A4 sheet). ♦ Student question sheet (they write the answers on this too) ♦ Answer sheet (for marking) I have written the information in ‘kid speak’ to the best that I could. The font is size 20 so it can be read from a bit of a distance. The answers that your students record are all simple answers (1-2 words). I would estimate the required reading age to be 8+ years (for independent reading of the cards). Lower ability students can buddy up with a friend during the scavenger hunt if necessary. All of the cards are ink-friendly black and white. Of course, you don’t have to use the cards as a scavenger hunt. They can be used for whatever purpose you wish. Chart: An A4 size chart that shows 6 reasons why Māori made and flew kites. Pictures: 4 coloured pictures (A4 size) that were hand drawn by a NZ artist (based on her interpretation). Use these on a wall display or as an aid for learning. The same pictures (in black and white) have been used throughout this resource. Activity Sheets: ♦ Word search. ♦ Venn diagram (comparing/contrasting Māori kites with modern day kites). ♦ Acrostic poem (kites / manu tukutuku). ♦ Letter boxes (word work activity). ♦ Kite design (design a kite and list equipment needed). ♦ Did you know … (write information in the speech bubble. ♦ Graphic organisers (for students to present research information on). ♦ Senses (what did they look/smell/feel/sound like?) ♦ Postage stamp design ♦ Trifold (for students to present research information on). ♦ Diorama (for students to present research information on). ♦ Flip flap (variety of uses). ♦ Interview questions (write questions you would like to ask an expert about). ♦ Kites ‘can/have/are’ graphic organiser. ♦ Procedural writing template – how to make a kite.

Māori Myths and Legends - Word Searches

Māori Myths and Legends - Word Searches

A fabulous resource to have in New Zealand classrooms when studying Māori Myths and Legends. Great for a follow-up activity after reading the story, or to have as an early-finisher task. 12 word searches. Eleven of the word searches have a Māori themed border or panel that can be coloured after finding all of the words. One word search has a flame/fire themed border (How Maui Found the Secret of Fire). These word searches are designed to go with the fabulous stories written by Peter Gossage. These books are commonly found in NZ schools and are also easily available for purchase in book stores. If you are not sure what these books look like, I suggest you do a quick image search on the internet (I'm not able to include an image here due to copyright restrictions). The words used in the word searches are taken from the stories in these books. The 12 Word Searches: ♦ How Maui Slowed the Sun ♦ The Fish of Maui ♦ How Maui Found his Father and the Magic Jawbone ♦ How Maui Found his Mother ♦ In the Beginning ♦ How Maui Defied the Goddess of Death ♦ How Maui Found the Secret of Fire ♦ Battle of the Mountains ♦ Pania of the Reef ♦ Rona and the Moon ♦ The Giant of Lake Wakatipu ♦ Hinemoa and Tūtānekai Each word search is on A4 size paper and can easily be reduced to A5 if necessary. There are 16 words to be found on each word search. ANSWER SHEETS are included. ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

MATARIKI - Star Craft with Facts

MATARIKI - Star Craft with Facts

Are you looking for a great activity for teaching your students some knowledge about Matariki (the Māori New Year)? This is an engaging activity that will look great in your classroom. Your students will colour/decorate a star template (2x A4 size pages) and then cut and glue it to reveal a fact about Matariki behind the ‘flaps’. There are 30 different facts which will hopefully allow a different fact for each student in your class. After constructing the stars, your students can orally share their fact with the class to help build knowledge about Matariki. The stars can be pinned to the wall or you can hang them to create a fabulous galaxy! Some precision is required with cutting and gluing. If you have younger students, you may like to buddy them up with an older class (great for fostering the tuakana-teina relationship). Included: ♦ Instructions that are easy-to-follow (pictures included). ♦ List of the 30 facts. ♦ Template – front of the star ♦ Template – back of the star (with fact) x30 Examples of the Facts: ♦ Matariki is a cluster of stars that disappears below the horizon in April and reappears in late May or early June. ♦ If you drove to the Matariki stars in a car at a speed of 100 km/hr, you would arrive in 4.8 billion years! ♦ The stars of Matariki were used by the crews of voyaging waka as a navigational aid to guide them across the Pacific Ocean. ♦ It is now thought that there are 9 stars (rather than 7) in the Matariki star cluster. Their names are: Uru-ā-rangi, Waitī, Waitā, Tupu-ā-rangi, Tupu-ā-nuku, Matariki, Waipuna-ā-rangi, Pōhutukawa, Hiwa-i-te-rangi. Many of these facts will be a great starting point for a topic of inquiry. ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

First Australians Episode 4: No Other Law

First Australians Episode 4: No Other Law

This episode of First Australians gives an excellent academic account of the first 50 years of contact between the Arrernte people of central Australia and the European missionaries, pastoralists and police. What makes it so amazing is that the narrative is seen by both the lens of the Arrernte people and that of the European settlers. Issues covered include: laws and Dreaming stories of the Arrernte people and the importance of this to the lives of the people, early relations between Arrernte and European peoples, the impact of pastoralism, frontier conflict and atrocities, and the clash of Arrernte beliefs and Christian missionaries. An excellent case-study in contact history.

Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheener.  Freedom fighters or murderers?

Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheener. Freedom fighters or murderers?

Dispossessed of their land and all means of survival as a result of the genocidal "Black War" in Van Diemen's Land in the mid-1800s to 1832, warriors Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheener took the only option available to them, they fought back. Their guerrilla campaign resulted in the deaths of British settlers. The men were captured by the British army and transported to Port Phillip Bay (now Melbourne) to be the first men hung in the local prison. Were they freedom fighters or murderers? Unfortunately, our written evidence is entirely British. The Tasmanian Aborigines passed down their histories orally. Can you identify the forces at play: systemic racism, biased sources and dispossession on the scale of the Highland Clearances?

Te Reo Maori Words that Every Kiwi Should Know

Te Reo Maori Words that Every Kiwi Should Know

This fun and engaging game helps to reinforce and introduces students to the Maori language. The games shuffle ability assures that no two games are ever the same which means you can use the same resource multiple times. I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game can be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. This is a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say "yes" to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions. Enjoy
