Maori creation story. R9

Rangi (father sky)

Papatuanuku (Mother earth0

 Gretchen's lesson. 7 and 8 year olds
The class is preparing for a Kapa Haka performance. I was asked to help by making some backdrops with the class.

Carrie and I drew up the sun, Papatuanuka and Rangi, all important in the Maori creation story. I always feel guilty, drawing up images for kids. But...we were working on such a large scale, 3 metres long, it was necessary to draw up the image in order to have the work completed in the time we had.

We discussed use of the paint, cleanliness, working with others, colour combinations that were appropriate and neatness.
I was impressed how diligently the children worked, until we had completed the task.
