Māori Myths and Legends - Fantail Craft

Māori Myths and Legends - Fantail Craft

(0)
The fantail (pīwakawaka) features in many Māori myths and legends. This craft activity can be used for any of the stories (or alternatively, for a study on New Zealand birds). Students write or draw on the tail fan and then attach it to the bird. You can add as many tail fans as you wish. Two Options: ♦ Attach the tail fan(s) to a bird that has been cut out. ♦ Attach the tail fan(s) to a bird that is on a sheet of paper (you will probably need a long-armed stapler for this option). Two Sets of Templates: ♦ Fantail facing right. ♦ Fantail facing left. Writing / Drawing Suggestions: ♦ Write facts about fantails. ♦ Draw your favourite part of the story. ♦ Give the story a rating out of 10 and give a reason. ♦ Write about the story (plot, setting, characters, message, etc). ♦ Draw a fantail and add labels. ♦ Write about where you’d like to fly to if you were a fantail. ♦ Write vocabulary from the story (English / Te Reo). The tail fans are completely blank (no lines for writing). If you would like lines, then I suggest you draw some before photocopying. Designed on A4 size paper. Approximate size when cut out is 23cm by 16cm. The Templates (right and left facing): ♦ Bird with page border, tree branches and the word ‘pīwakawaka’. ♦ Bird. ♦ 1x feather tail fan and 1x blank tail fan. ♦ 2 x feather tail fans. ♦ 2 x blank tail fans. ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources
New Zealand Kiwi Craft – Flip Flap

New Zealand Kiwi Craft – Flip Flap

(0)
A fun kiwi bird template that can be used for a wide variety of learning activities. Write or draw whatever you wish on the body ‘flaps’. Add as many flaps as you’d like. Two Options: ♦ Kiwi – on paper with a border. Staple the flaps to the body. Less cutting so this option may suit younger students. ♦ Kiwi – cut out and staple the flaps to the body. Two Orientations: ♦ Kiwi facing right. ♦ Kiwi facing left. Two Options for Stapling: ♦ At the neck – turn the pages sideways. ♦ At the top – lift the pages up. Included: ♦ Kiwi – with page border, tree branches and the word ‘Kiwi’. ♦ Kiwi - body (for cutting out). ♦ 1x feathered body piece and 1 x blank body piece. ♦ 2x feathered body pieces. ♦ 2x blank body pieces. ♦ 2x lined body pieces. Some Examples of Use: ♦ Reading response activity (eg Māori myths and legends). ♦ Facts about kiwis / New Zealand / New Zealanders. ♦ Poetry. ♦ Art – make a background and glue the kiwi onto it. ♦ Conservation topics. Made on A4 size paper. Approximate size when cut out: 27cm x 17cm. A fairly basic shape to cut out. The only tricky part is cutting around the whiskers. I highly recommend just cutting them off. Please note that this resource is similar to a kiwi template that I have for the story How the Kiwi Lost its Wings.
