Did you know that Kupe was probably the first explorer to reach NZ? Early Polynesian explorers used traditional navigation methods to guide them on their voyage. But what would make someone leave their island and travel thousands of miles across the ocean?
This movie was created by our Year 5 & 6 Extension students. First they wrote stories about Maori and Pacific warriors. Then they created a graphic of their own Maori or Pacific warrior on Hyperstudio. Each student can be seen fighting with their warrior in the movie. Check it out!
(Special thanks goes to Mr Jacobsen for his fantastic narrating skills!)
