PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Who wouldn't want to be sitting on a warm, sandy beach in the sun? With this lesson plan, you and your students can at least pretend! Take a trip to the Polynesian Islands and explore their history through mythology. We start with the history of Polynesian Mythology so your students will understand the purpose of it, move on to Rangi and Papa and how they created the world (Maori), then stop in Hawai'i and learn about Pele, the Goddess of Fire. We also read about Sina and her eel and finally learn about Maui, the Hawaiian trickster God. If this isn't enough, you and your student get to play a round of Polynesian Mad Libs to create your own version of "Maui Uniting the Islands"!

To bring all of this together, your students will then write a 2 paragraph short response comparing and contrasting 2 of the myths they've just read.

Included:
History of Polynesian Mythology
Rangi and Papa
The Legend Behind Hawaii’s Goddess of Fire
Sina and Her Eel (tuna)
The Oahu Legends of Māui
Polynesian Mad Libs
Compare and Contrast Short Answer

Laki maika'i! (Good Luck!) I hope you and your students have fun on your Polynesian tour!
