Maui the fifth tells the story of the demigod Maui and how he created the Hawaiian Islands in a rhyming poem full of alliteration and fun. Questions include a progression of concrete to abstract that explore character, writer's craft, and ultimately theme. Use the story as an interdisciplinary study tied to volcanos, Hawaiian studies, or social studies. Connect and compare to other tales, or use it as a way to study poetry and prose. So many options with this self-published work!
