Lesson sequence

Ask the students to write the numbers 1-5 on the left hand side of a page in their books.

Read aloud the passage from Resource sheet 4A: E haere ana au to the class twice. Then read out the five statements to the class in Māori about where the characters have decided to go. Tell the students to determine whether the statements are true or false and write ‘āe’ for yes or ‘kāore’ for no.

Ask the students to swap books and check one another’s answers.

Further learning

As a revision task, divide the students into groups of 10. Ask the students to cut out the sentences from Resource sheet 4B and match the Māori sentences with the English sentences that best describe the place that the group went to. It may be useful to review the scenario from Resource sheet 4A beforehand.

When answering the questions, students can substitute ‘kei te tika’ (true) and ‘kei te hē’ (false) for ‘āe’ and ‘kāore’.
