How do you perform a Maori 'Haka'?

First we get our ‘chin moko’ marked to show that we are happy and ready to perform our ‘haka’.

I made two toy men out of all the shapes I know and they look happy just like me.

Cook Islands Bread from Room 2

On Friday the 8th of June 2012, Room 2 made bread as part of our Guided Inquiry Learning - Learning to appreciate cultural diversity within New Zealand. The purpose was for children to learn about how the bread made in the Cook Islands and compare it to the bread made in New Zealand.
First we mix the ingredients together in a bowl. Then we made round balls and put them on the tray. After that, we put the tray in the oven for about twenty minutes. I took my bread home and shared with my family. It was really yummy.
