Mata-ariki-The Eyes of the God Tāwhirimātea Collaborative




After the separation of Rangi and Papa there was arguing amongst their sons. Tāwhirimātea was not happy about the separation of his parents.

The illustrated story included tells this story and how it relates to Matariki.

Learners can then retell/rewrite the story on an illustrated sheet.

Finally they can colour their piece of the collaborative poster.

Learners can retell the story having completed their part.

This fits in perfectly with a weather unit (Tāwhirimātea is atua of the weather).

Furthermore it is an essential part of Matariki celebrations and the creation story.
