This resource contains 9 mini collaborative posters for each of the stars of Matariki. ( Each collaborative consists of 4 poster pieces). Each one measures approximately 400 cm x 400 cm once all the pieces are glued together. This dimension is a great size to showcase the work.

In addition, there are also coloured exemplars. These can guide your students on how they will fill in their collaborative piece. However, you can also give them the freedom to choose the colours they want. Each unique collaborative piece completes a stunning image.

Moreover, there are fact cards from which students can read information about the stars of Matariki. They could write what they learned on the posters and even fill in the spaces with their wishes.
