Green Grubs Garden Club: Best Matariki books for Primary {+ FREE follow up activity sheets}

Matariki has links to so many areas of the curriculum and key competencies - science, art, myths and legends, gardening, healthy eating, goal setting and reflection to name just a few. I'm sure that most primary teachers will agree that the best way into most topics and inquiry is through a great book - so I've compiled a little list of my favourites! Most of these books come complete with several FREE follow up activities - just click below to download. Daniel's Matariki Feast. Matariki story. Matariki picture book follow up activities.pdf. Matariki. Melulater: Matariki - an overview of a unit of work. I did not know that Matariki existed, except in the sense that it is one word for stars, until 2006 when a colleague had his kids colouring in pictures of stars because it was Matariki.Fast forward a couple of years to 2009, and a couple of mates decided it was a good idea to get out of bed far too early on a frosty morning to go and take photos of Matariki rising over the horizon on Buffalo Beach in Whitianga.

Melulater: Matariki - an overview of a unit of work

Last year I did a bit more research into Matariki and started to build some resources. However, my unit of work prior to when I had planned to do Matariki, had been a lot, and my class was still working on that, so some students did the Matariki unit, but I didn't do it justice. This year I decided to put in more effort, and we have done more justice to Matariki.
