This resource features British/NZ spelling and paper sizes.

What this resource is all about:

The purpose of this resource is to provide ready-to-go Matariki texts and engaging higher order thinking questions.

This resource is jam-packed with exciting, thought-provoking activities to grab your students’ attention AND hold it. The activities begin at the lower levels of Blooms Taxonomy (Remember, Understand, Apply) and move through to the higher levels (Analyse, Evaluate, Create).

In this pack you will receive:

1. Three texts:

  • What is Matariki?
  • Matariki Today
  • Matariki and the Stars legend

2. Two sets of Higher Order Thinking Activities based on the following stories:
