Product Description

As part of the Year 8 History curriculum, teachers may choose to explore Polynesian Expansion with their students. As part of this unit, you may like to explore some of the practices of this civilisation with a look at the movie Moana (2016).

This resource contains introductory notes about some of the key features of this film that can be examined and linked to learning about Polynesian Expansion. When the film was released, many critics found that the portrayal of the Polynesian people was inaccurate and there has since been in increase of information about this civilisation and its history. In this resource, students are encouraged to learn the truth about the demigod Maui and his place in Polynesian mythology. They can learn about Way-Finding and how the Polynesian people could find their way using the sky and the swells of the ocean. Students are also encouraged to develop their perspective and empathy through reflecting on what it might be like to sail into the unknown like the Polynesians did. And, students can learn the facts and fiction behind the film and the relevance or value of a film like Moana as a historical source.
