Through the process of observing, discussing and creating these, ākonga will make connections with the symbols, patterns and importance of this Māori art medium. Besides that they will be able to draw representations of things that are important to them within their own pou.
Before the era of photography pou recorded and represented important ancestors and events. Most importantly pou whakairo (carvings) can tell tribal stories.

Above all, the lesson plans are prescriptive and easy to follow for the teacher and learner.
This beautiful art form still remains and modern-day interpretations continue to amaze viewers with their visual stories.

    SO popular! Learners are always asking to do more! East instructions ( if you need them) and great examples. Very tumeke for a range of things- even publishing kupu inside poupou

    Absolutely love this resource. The students each created their own Atua of something important to them and as part of the process we went to the Marae and linked the knowledge we had with the carvings there. So much learning and excitement when things were discovered. Tu meke.

    Brilliant resource. Love the step-by-step instructions to guide the students who are less confident in art. The whole unit was totally worth every cent – I’ll definitely be using this one again.

      Kia ora Rachel, I love the art work produced by your tamariki and the way you integrated the pou into your Inquiry 🙂
