Week 3 - Being a Kiwi

Hello, Kia ora, talofa lava, malo e lelei, ni hao, namaste & ohayo gozaimasu

This week it is all about celebrating being a New Zealander and all the beautiful cultures that we have here in NZ. I have set up some interesting challenges to help you along the way - it's a short week so don't try and do them all. To get you started check out the video.

  • Redesign a piece of kiwiana using another culture as inspiration.
  • Create a visual or digital mihi, pepeha or biopoem. A template for a biopoem is here.
  • Design a new New Zealand flag.
  • Write a poem about being a New Zealander.
  • Write or draw to explain the whakatauki: "He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata! He tangata! He tangata!" which translates into "What is the most important thing in the world? It is people! It is people! It is people!"
  • Plan a time capsule to showcase New Zealand - what would you put in this? Check out this blog for ideas Time Capsule Idea
The questions for this week are as follow:
  1. Where were you born and how long have you lived in NZ?
  2. What languages can you speak? or what language would you like to learn and why?
  3. What are the best and worst things about living in NZ?
  4. How many cultures/nationalities are there in your class or school? What are they?
  5. What is something that you have learned about a different culture?
  6. What would you put in a time capsule to celebrate NZ culture?
  7. If you could make another NZ public holiday, what would it be and why? Eg Matariki, Diwali, Chinese New Years or something else.
  8. Would you want to change the NZ flag? Why or why not? Don't forget to tweet a photo if you redesigned the flag.
  9. What does being a New Zealander or Kiwi mean to you? How does it make you feel?
Hope to see you all on Thursday at 2pm,
