May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month and celebrate with this amazing lesson on the traditional Maori dance, the Haka!
Great for getting your class up and moving, students love the choreographed movements, the loud lyrics, and sticking out their tongue! They also enjoy learning about the Maori culture, including their tattoos, which makes this the perfect lesson for exposing your class to different cultures during Asian-Pacific Heritage Month.
You don't need to be a dancer to use this in your room, let the step by step videos (featuring the world famous All Blacks) take you through the motions. Depending on your skill level there are lyrics to sing along with, and audio tracks. So sing and dance your way into learning with this fun lesson on the awesome Haka!
