Matariki Celebration

We had to go out of school and get some toetoe but first we had to do a karakia then cut the toetoe then bring them back to class for our Manu Tukutuku.

The reason we made Manu Tukutuku was to celebrate Matariki and every class have made something.  This is how we celebrate matariki by having a feast,  storytelling and especially doing kapa haka and powhiri matariki is also about the seven star but they were seven sister.

We had to use our math strategy  to make our Manu Tukutuku we had to measure the toetoe then split the toetoe into three equal parts.

These are the materials we use for our Manu Tukutuku.   colour wool, Toetoe, Raupō / flax and black paper .

My buddy Memphis help me make the Manu Tukutuku but we had to use tikanga to  finish the Manu Tukutuku Tikanga mean why we do what we do.

We had to measure the toetoe then we had to do a video about how we put the toetoe in three equal part.


I was away when this photo was taken.  Memphis was my buddy, so here is a picture of our kite.
