Here are a few pictures of our reading comprehension science activity. The students had to predict the smells of strawberries, cheese, spring onions and chocolate. A fun experience to consolidate the learning.
Today, we have finally got outside to tell different perspectives of how the Maori people travelled to Aotearoa, New Zealand. We took some time reading different stories and creating props to help us learn diverse perspectives. We learned about the scientific navigation such as using the wind, swells, currents, Moon, stars, fish, clouds and birds. And we learned the traditional explanation through the myths and legends. The props were created on clear plastic. The sun rays projected the images onto the ground whilst we traveled from Hawaiki to New Zealand.
