Product Description
Celebrate the Māori New Year with this literacy and craft resource. Read the article in the NZ School Journal, complete the follow-up comprehension activity and then make a paper lantern.

The School Journal article is not provided in this resource.
You will need access to: New Zealand School Journal – Part 1 – Number 3 – 2005

The article is about 2 children who find old kamokamo shells under their Gran’s hedge. They plant the seeds and wait for the new kamokamo to grown. They make lanterns out of the dried shells during Matariki.

Reading Comprehension Activity:
After reading the article in the school journal, students make a kamokamo flip book to show the order that events happened in the article. There are a total of 14 events plus a title page and a back page to colour. The kamokamo are on two A4 pages. There are 2 sets of activity sheets – one set has clues in the stalk of the picture to indicate ‘beginning, middle or end’ (B, M, E). This set is suitable for your students that require some extra support to complete the task. Answers are provided.

Paper Lantern Activity:
There are various templates that you can choose from to print and use. Please click on the ‘Look Inside’ button above to see examples of all templates. Some are for colouring only, and others require your students to add further decoration/patterns. A ‘handle’ template is also included however you may just wish to use scrap paper for this. Instructions are provided.
