Matariki at Te Papa

We had time either before or after our Matariki session to explore Te Papa. We found out more about the where early Maori stored their food for Matariki celebrations and traditional instruments. 
Exploring around Te Papa.
Drawing pictures of the storage house.

In our Matariki session with the Te Papa educators. We listened to a story about a magical eel (tuna in Maori) and acted it out through movement and dance. 

We did a lot of leaping and twisting and turning. 

We had fun pulling out the things that were in tuna's mouth and having a dance. 

The star lab was exciting too. We climbed inside and saw the night sky come up above us. We saw the stars that our areas are named after: Autahi, Tautoru, Mahutonga, and of course Matariki. 

Looking closely as we draw. 
We found some interesting instruments in the Pacifica exhibition, linking into our current Sound Inquiry.
