Te reo Māori in English-medium schools
5.2 Communicate about present and past states, feelings, and opinions.
At the end of this lesson, students can:
Tuhituhi - Writing: Write information on familiar topics in a range of contexts, past and present.
Pānui - Reading: Distinguish between past and present actions and states.
Whakarongo - Listening: Understand specific details in contexts that may contain some unfamiliar language.
Tell the students that the story of Māui fishing up Te Ika a Māui describes how he came to be fishing with his brothers and the outcome of the fishing trip.
In pairs, students then retell this Māui story in their own words, in Māori.
Print copies of Resource sheets 5E, 5F and 5G for students to complete. The answers are online in three Māui stories found on the Te Kete Ipurangi website.
