Map New Zealand
Draw a map of New Zealand, listing well-known features and cities, as well as the town in which Ashton-Warner taught. Include information on where most Maori live in New Zealand.
Using information gleaned from the Internet and books, take a world map and map the likely route that the early Polynesians (the ancestors of the Maori) took to reach New Zealand.
Land of the Long White Cloud
Using any materials you wish (papier mache, clay, etc.), make a physical relief map of New Zealand. Mark mountains and valleys, as well as shore areas and discuss how these physical features likely influenced Maori culture and development of the land.
Research traditional Maori songs and bring samples in to the classroom to share with one another. If translations of lyrics are available, discuss the meanings behind the songs.
