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. Made on A4 size paper. ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

Two sheets of paper are required for each published poem (front circle with star and back circle with poem). Approximate size when cut out is 18cm in diameter. Framework A: 1 Noun (topic) 2 Adjectives 3 Verbs (-ing words) 4 Nouns 1 Synonym Framework B: The same as Framework A except line four changes to a ‘4 word phrase’. ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources
