Maori Design Necklaces

Every Friday afternoons the class have been enjoying doing arts and crafts from New Zealand. A couple of months ago, the class learned about important Maori symbols and designs and their meanings. Students drew pictures from what they had seen on the internet and resources Ms. Lologa brought from New Zealand. The next lesson Ms. Lologa brought in some modelling clay for the class to create their own Maori necklaces. The students chose what design and symbol they wanted to make. As part of tradition, you must give your first necklace away, some of the students gave it to their family members or classmates. Watch our animoto video of the class making their necklaces.
