He Kete Mātauranga: Te Whare me ōna tikanga
What does the whare and its various parts represent? What are its parts called? What is the whare used for?
These questions and more will be answered as we investigate the notion of a whare as a story book.
We will teach your students a haka to help retain new ideas, and open chapters of carved, woven and painted stories. We end our session by showing students how other objects/taonga tell stories.
