Product Description
The art lessons are designed to enhance a study of Maori culture with the youngest of our children, 5 year olds.
These lessons cater for the shorter attention span of younger children.
I have designed a cluster of short lessons based around the koru, This is the Maori name for the uncurling frond of the tree fern, ponga. It is used in many Maori art forms.

The colours used in this unit; red, white and black, are significant.
These colours come from the story of creation. The black represents "Te Po" the darkness, the red represents the blood that was spilt and the white represents "Te Ao Marama" - the light.

Skills and processes; cutting, drawing, copying, gluing, patterning, designing
