This unit of work aims to raise your students’ awareness of Matariki, a significant festival that is celebrated throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. It is designed for both Early Childhood and Primary learners, and has cross curricular links with the 5 strands of Te Whāriki, as well as Social Sciences, Science, Literacy, and Learning Languages areas of the New Zealand Curriculum.
